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!
