Andy Robertson helped Scotland to a 1-0 win over Slovakia last night, but that wasn’t the talking point for some Liverpool fans online.
The Scot’s skipper picked up a booking and will now be unavailable for selection for Wednesday night’s fixture against the Czech Republic.
A fair few Liverpool fans on Twitter clocked that this means he will now not play again until he’s back in Merseyside for the derby against Everton.
Obviously, and selfishly, it’s a good thing there isn’t another chance for Robbo to pick up in injury during the international break.
The last couple of weeks have brought some good news elsewhere, with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson playing over an hour for England after recovering from an injury.
With Alisson, Thiago Alcantara and Sadio Mane all forced to the sidelines recently, not to mention Hendo’s absence, we can’t afford to lose any more starters.
And because of that, some Liverpool fans were in a joyous mood after a yellow card forced Robertson out of Scotland’s mid-week game against Slovakia.
We’d just like to point out that Liverpool fans generally aren’t anti-Scotland, it’s more anti-international football as a whole, so this isn’t saying ‘we’ don’t want Scotland to win.
Take a look at some selected tweets below:
Well in for the booking lad, Scouse not Scottish
