(Video) “You’re discrediting my Villa away game there!” – Andy Robertson quick to remind interviewer of most important goal

Posted by

He certainly doesn’t get many and for Andy Robertson to score on derby day, in front of the Kop – it was something special.

Speaking with LFC TV after the game, the 28-year-old was asked if this was the most important goal he’d ever scored: “Certainly one of the most enjoyable that’s for sure, I think you’re discrediting my Villa away game there actually!

“I’ve been waiting a long time to score in front of the Kop, it’s always a thing when you sign for Liverpool that you want to do, I’d not quite managed it but what an amazing feeling.

“The manager and Pep at half-time said we needed more men in the box, so I thought ‘Why not me?’!

“Luckily I snuck in back post and it was a great ball, my Dad’s always taught me to put it back across the goal where the ‘keepers coming from and I think his words were ringing in my ears when the ball came across”.

Thanks need to be given to Mr. Robertson then after that goal, it was a great header and it’s great to hear that this came after the manager’s words at half-time.

The interview also shows the importance of Pep Lijnders too, with the more men in the box line preceding putting four men up front against a deep-lying Everton team.

Let’s hope it’s the first of many at the Kop end for our No.26 and maybe even a few more to come in the Merseyside derby too!
