Robertson hails Liverpool players' mentality for title triumph

Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson hailed the players' mentality after being confirmed Premier League champions.

The Reds claimed their first league title in 30 years after Chelsea beat second-placed Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.

Speaking to LFCTV after the news of Liverpool's title triumph was confirmed, the Scotland defender said: "That's the mentality of this squad.

"We won the Champions League and in the summer I can't say that I wasn't happy with having that winners' medal around my neck, but a part of us did feel like it could've been more.

"It could have been a double and on that open-top bus we could've maybe had the Premier League trophy as well.

"But that's the attitude we took with us as well this season.

"We've showed we can take setbacks in our stride because we got beat in the Champions League final and then the next season we win it

"We got beat by a point one season in the Premier League and then the next season we go and run away with it."
