Robertson was a winger during his playing days and has worked closely with Albrighton.
"I've seen highlights of him playing a few times - my dad Terry's got a few videos," Albrighton told the Sunday Mercury.
"I've watched clips of John Robertson and I couldn't wish for a better coach to learn from, playing in the position that I do.
"He's got the medals to prove how good he was and I think, if you ask anyone in that era, they'd say so."
He added: "He's always offering advice and telling me how to bring more things into my game and from a player with two European Cup medals, I won't go far wrong if I listen to him."
