By | January 19, 2019

Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to Andy Robertson after the defender signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool.

Scotland captain has emerged as a key player for the Merseysiders since signing from Hull City last season, already playing over 50 games for the club.

On the 24-year-old’s new deal, Jurgen Klopp told the club’s official website: ‘I think of all the contract renewals I have been involved with, this one was done in almost record time.’

Andrew Robertson added: ‘As soon as the club came to me, it was a no-brainer for me – I want to stay here, so as soon as they put an offer on the table, it was signed as quickly as that.

‘It was a pretty easy contract for me, and I’m sure for the club as well. We both agreed very quickly, that’s why it’s been done so quickly.

‘Getting to know the lads and working with all the staff at Melwood has been a pleasure. The best thing about work is when you love coming in every day – and that’s what I do here.

‘I am glad I have extended my stay and hopefully, we have a lot of good days ahead.’
