Robertson admits life at Liverpool has changed Celtic plans

Andy Robertson says playing for Liverpool has changed his plans of returning to boyhood club Celtic.

Glasgow-born Robertson started of his youth career with Celtic and always planned on playing for the Bhoys.

Now a Premier League and Champions League winner with the Reds, the Scotland captain feels he has found a permanent home at Anfield.

"It's something that I think about quite a lot to be honest," the 26-year-old told The Lockdown Tactics podcast.

"As my career started to progress, if you had asked me at Hull would I have liked to have gone back up to Celtic I'd have said 100 per cent I want to play for the club I have supported all my life.

"But now I've kind of found a home at Liverpool. I love playing for this club and playing at the highest level and if I could retire at Liverpool I'd bite your hand off for it now.

"Playing at this club is amazing the way you get looked after, the way the fans are, and playing at Anfield every second week is incredible. In an ideal world I retire here but I know how hard that is going to be.

"When I was younger I wanted to play for Celtic and have my best years at Celtic. I didn't want to be 33, 34 and hanging on and going up there when I knew my best years were gone."
