Robertson throws Liverpool future into doubt, hopes to join Celtic

Andrew Robertson has alerted Liverpool over his future by claiming he hopes he can play for Celtic one day.

Speaking in an interview with the PLZ Soccer, the £50k-per-week Scotsman claimed he would love to turn out for the Bhoys. However, the 27-year-old said he doesn’t want to return to Celtic Park when he’s old.

Robertson started off as a youth team player for the Glasgow giants, but, he was released by the club before he could make an impact. He started his senior career off with Queen’s Park in League Two of Scottish football before his rise to prominence.

He joined Liverpool back in 2017 from then-relegated Hull City and has gone on to become one of the best full-backs in world football. The Scotland captain has lifted the Premier League and Champions League during his time at Anfield.

Liverpool future under threat: Robertson could leave in the near-future for Celtic

With everything that has happened with Liverpool this season, the fall from grace has been quite spectacular.

To go from Premier League champions to struggling to make top-four could well be a sign of a burnt-out squad.

And with the Manchester City juggernaut rolling on under Pep Guardiola, it seems as though the Citizens could dominate next season.

Robertson’s claims over wanting to return to Celtic seem quite genuine. Should the Merseysiders continue to struggle in their quest to reclaim the Premier League crown, a move for the defender could be on the cards.

The ‘complete player’ has dropped off after his staggering number of assists in the 2019/2020 season. He set up just seven goals this campaign, down five from the previous term.

After such a drop in performances for both Robertson and Liverpool, a move could be on the cards. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that the star looks to fulfil him childhood dream of turning out for the Scottish Premiership side.
