Two years in senior football, one with Queen's Park and another with Dundee United, cannot prepare the young Scot for what awaits, but there is only a smile when asked how he might cope.
"Maybe it is because of my age but it's not something I think about," said Robertson to the Hull Daily Mail.
"You see it all the time that young boys often deal with it better because they've never experienced it.
"I've never really been in a relegation fight. Sometimes the manager will go with experience and I've got to take that on the chin.
"At the start of the season, if you'd offered me the appearances that I've made, I'd have bitten your hand off."
