Liverpool fullback Robertson: I know I must fight again for starting spot

Andy Robertson has welcomed Liverpool's summer market additions.

The Scotland fullback admits he's desperate for trophy glory after defeat in the Champions League final.

Robertson told the Liverpool Echo: “Of course I was disappointed with how last season ended.

“I don't think anyone expected us to get to the Champions League final other than the people inside the club but everyone took notice of us after the Porto game and we just built from that.

“We were desperate to win it and when you get so close it's hard to let go and we'll use that as motivation and hopefully it can be an advantage rather than a disadvantage for us this season."

Robertson added: “Last season I was settling in. I missed the first four or five months through a mixture of things including Alberto (Moreno) playing very well and being the main one but obviously I got my chance.

“I'm glad the manager put me in and I hope I repaid him back.

“I've got to keep trying to do that – this season is big for me – and hopefully I can get off to a good start and just kick on from where I left off last season."
