Alan Shearer waxes lyrical about 'magnificent' Liverpool star

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has been given high praise by pundit Alan Shearer following Saturday’s 4-0 win over Southampton.

The all-time leading goalscorer in the Premier League named the Scotland left-back in his Team of the Week on the official website.

Robertson was back to his best after picking up a niggle during the recent international break.

The 27-year-old signed for Liverpool in 2017 and he’s grown into one of Europe’s top full-backs.

He has helped Liverpool to Premier League and Champions League titles, featuring 191 times for the football club.

On Saturday he claimed an assist and that led Shearer to rave about the £160,000-a-week player.

He told the Premier League’s official website: “Magnificent in every department. He was solid defensively and provided some wonderful crosses, including an assist for the opening goal.”

Liverpool are on course to challenge for the title during 2021/22.

That will delight the supporters who were forced to watch behind closed doors as the Reds relinquished their title with a whimper.

With fans now roaring them on week in and week out, they could become a formidable force in the quest to claim their second Premier League title.

Robertson integral to Liverpool fortunes

That is down to the ability of Robertson and he’s a constant menace at both ends of the pitch when he does play.

Klopp will know how important Robertson is to his team’s fortunes and Saturday only served to enhance that notion.

His delivery into the box is truly sensational and as a result, his assist came after a delicious ball once again.

Robertson is in his prime and has several years ahead of him at the very top level.
