Robertson signs new long-term Liverpool contract

He began watching Liverpool and local rivals Everton in 1923 when an uncle started taking him to games on the tram from their home in Wavertree each week and a love affair with the Reds soon formed.

Reds' boss Jürgen Klopp added: "I think of all the contract renewals I have been involved with, this one was done in nearly record time".

I remember when we signed him back in the summer of 2017, I spoke a lot about "his story, his journey" and how much I loved it and thought it pointed to the type of person and player he would be for us.

"Nobody could expect it but we were hoping for it".

"When I wake up, I don't go to the training ground thinking we will not win".

"It's fantastic this will now be their home for even longer".

"I have improved my Scottish a little with him which helps with all my conversations with Kenny Dalglish!"

Part of that progress is keeping hold of what Liverpool already have, with Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Sadio Mane, Salah and Roberto Firmino all having signed long-term deals in recent months.

"Jurgen Klopp's side have kept a clean sheet in 12 of their last 16 home Premier League games and I feel it will be hard for the Eagles, managed by former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson, to create goalscoring opportunities". "If we can keep these boys together, we are in the middle of our development, so it's good news for Liverpool".

"Playing alongside Van Dijk helped, he's really vocal, he guided us".

Liverpool are four points clear at the top of the Premier League table and play Crystal Palace on Saturday.

He spent three years at the KCOM Stadium, including two in the Premier League - and clearly caught the eye of Liverpool.

"The club gave us fantastic opportunity to bring in outstanding players, to keep outstanding players. I am sure we will win the league". This season will not finish our development. Not that we don't like Melwood, we love Melwood, but that's another step in the future.
