Everyone loves a bit of banter. And in Liverpool’s case, having won another Champions League title earlier this month, it’s fair to say spirits are running high.
Many of Jurgen Klopp’s side have been on international duty, and one man who has enjoyed things in particular is defender Andy Robertson. The left-back struck the opening goal of Scotland’s 2-1 win against Cyprus in Euro 2020 qualifying, and certainly seemed to enjoy it.
The 25-year-old’s rocket from 20 yards saw him net a rare goal, which prompted an amusing response from Reds teammate James Milner.
The midfielder, who seems to have fully shed his tag of ‘Boring Milner’, posted a video on Instagram mocking Robertson’s goal and celebration, and included captions of ‘don’t try this at home’ and ‘left-back union’.

The pair were cornerstones of Liverpool’s success both domestically and in Europe this season, and were amongst the side’s most consistent performers.
Indeed, Robertson in particular enjoyed an incredible campaign in terms of helping the side to score goals, with a mind-boggling 13 assists from left-back.
The Scotsman continues to progress at Anfield since his move from Hull in the summer of 2017, and forged one of Europe’s most devastating full-back partnerships with Trent Alexander-Arnold last year.
