‘Out of sorts’: BBC pundit says 28-year-old Liverpool player has been nowhere near his best this season

BBC pundit Garth Crooks says Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has been nowhere near his best this season. 

Robertson put in a brilliant display on Saturday as he provided two assists during the 3-1 win over Southampton. 

The 28-year-old doubled his assists tally for the season and certainly looked back to his best at Anfield. 

Crooks was full of praise for Robertson after his display but said the Scotland international has been ‘out of sorts’ all season.

Crooks on Robertson 

The BBC pundit selected Robertson in his Premier League Team of the Week after his display against the Saints. 

Crooks says the Liverpool star is the best left-back in the country when he’s playing at his best, but feels he hasn’t been himself this season. 

“This lad has been out of sorts for a while now – for some reason he’s certainly not been himself,” he said. 

“Against a Southampton side who seemed to respond to the arrival of new boss Nathan Jones, Andy Robertson looked like his confidence had returned. When Robertson is on his game there isn’t a better left-back in the country.

“He produced two excellent assists, his first for Roberto Firmino and his second for Darwin Nunez. With Scotland out of the World Cup, I’m not entirely sure Robertson will relish twiddling his thumbs for a month having got his form back.”

Robertson has not been at his best this season but looked more like his old self over the weekend. 

The Scotsman suffered a knee injury earlier in the season and was ruled out between the start of September and October. 

He has struggled to find consistency this season but that can be said for most of the Liverpool squad. 

But the Reds have now picked up three wins on the bounce and head into the international break in a more promising position. 

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping Robertson and the rest of his Liverpool side pick up where they left off when they return to action on Boxing Day.
