The defender has been integral to the Reds’ success over the recent years ever since joining the club for a modest fee back in 2017.

Andy Robertson would “love to retire” at Liverpool but has refused to rule out a possible departure from the club in the future.

Robertson’s transfer to Liverpool has been an immense success, especially considering the club had to pay a mere €8 million to secure his services from Hull City.

Operating from the left-back position, the 27-year-old has been an indispensable figure in Jurgen Klopp’s setup, leading the team to Champions League glory in 2018–19 and helping them end their 30-year-long Premier League title drought last season.

A Reds line-up without the Scotland international in it is almost unimaginable at this point, but that day might come sooner than expected as the boyhood Celtic fan could be tempted to return to his roots.

“I get asked this question a lot,” responded Robertson when asked about a potential Celtic switch during an interview with PLZ Soccer.

“Look, my aim is to finish at Liverpool, and I’d love to finish at Liverpool, but I know how tough it is to keep playing at the highest level. Time will come to make that decision.

“Right now I’ve still got a good length on my contract, I want to stay here forever and I hope to retire here, but you know if I keep going and I feel fit and I feel healthy, but when you get into your 30s things change, but I’d love to retire at this club.”
