Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has put pen to a new five-year contract keeping him at the club until 2024. The highly rated left-back has been offered this improved terms on the back of his impressive performances for the club in the past 12 months.

The Scotland captain has wowed Anfield faithful with his performances on field and his good understanding with Sadio Mane on the left side of the attack. Since breaking into the side last season as a result of an injury to Alberto Moreno the 24-year-old has been a sensation.

His performances against Manchester City last season in the Champions League was a memorable highlight as he excellently shackled Raheem Sterling during both legs of the tie.  Robertson is rated as the second most valuable fullback in the world according to CIES Football Observatory.

He is valued at £72 million second only to teammate Trent Alexander Arnold who is valued at £96 million. This could be as a result of Alexander-Arnold being younger five years younger than Robertson which makes him more valuable.

Robertson revealed his delight in signing the new contract and insisted that it was an easy decision for him to put pen on a new deal. He also revealed his intention to remain at the club for the considerable future and win trophies.

“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.”
