Liverpool inform defender, Andrew Robertson has been named the new captain of his country Scotland. Scotland manager Alex McLeish had been yet to make a permanent appointment since taking over, following Scott Brown’s retirement earlier this year.

But Robertson is set to lead the team in their friendly against World Cup semi-finalists Belgium on Friday and in their first UEFA Nations League match against Albania on September 10.

The 24-year-old made his debut for Scotland in 2014 as a second-half substitute in a 1-0 friendly win over Poland.

“It’s a massive honour for me and my family – it’s a great day for us,” Robertson said of his appointment. “I’m looking forward to leading the team out on Friday, and leading them out in the future.

“It’s probably the pinnacle of my career. I look forward to trying to lead this country back to major tournaments.”

The full back has started all four of their Premier League games in the new 2018-19 campaign and made 3 Assists.
