Liverpool fullback Robertson delighted for emotional Dalglish after title triumph

Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson was delighted for Sir Kenny Dalglish after being confirmed Premier League champions.

Dalglish became emotional on television discussing the triumph.

And Robertson says: "For The King to be emotional means we've done something pretty well.

"He was brought up as a player and a manager here and he was used to success — winning league titles and the Champions League year-in and year-out.

"For this club to go 30 years without winning the league was something we had to change. That's why people were more emotional than usual. We had quite a few wet eyes in the small party we had (after Manchester City's loss at Chelsea confirmed the Anfield title triumph on June 25).

"When you play for Liverpool, winning just means so much. I'm hopeful we won't have to wait 30 years for the next one. Hopefully, winning the league will become normal again for Liverpool."
