'OMG, no', 'FFS', 'Detest international football' - Liverpool fans react to new injury blow
By Richard Parks
Andrew Robertson could be facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering an injury on international duty – and Liverpool fans have expressed their disappointment on Twitter.
Robertson, 24, picked up what the Liverpool Echo reported today was a “slight knock” while playing in Scotland’s 1-0 friendly win over Hungary on Tuesday night.
The Liverpool left-back left the pitch after 67 minutes of the clash in Budapest, which Scotland won courtesy of Matt Phillips’ first international goal.

Robertson has been in outstanding form for Liverpool in recent months and has established himself as the first choice left-back ahead of Alberto Moreno, who began the campaign in that position.
Jurgen Klopp will not only be keen to have Robertson available for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace but also the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City next Wednesday.
