[Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has admitted that he would love to play for Celtic towards the end of his career if he is unable to retire at Anfield] If you asked me now what I’d want to do, I’d love to retire at Liverpool of course, but you know how hard it is to play at the highest of levels until you’re 35-36. I’d love to pull on the Celtic top and walk out at Parkhead. Do I want to go back at one point to even just live? Yeah, maybe

[Andrew Robertson wants to emulate James Milner by maintaining his current standards through to the age of 34] It’s going to be quite hard but I would love to be able to finish my career here. If I can keep my standards as high up to a James Milner type of age, I would be quite happy with that and call it a day then. I’d always said I would love to pull on the Celtic top to play; I obviously played for Dundee United, which I loved. Look, you never say never. You’re a long time retired, as they say, and I want to play as long as I can. If that’s finishing up in Scotland or at one point going up to Scotland, I’d be open to it. But my ideal situation is probably finishing and hopefully a couple more trophies at Liverpool

[Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson says Premier League return will give country a ‘big lift’] All the Premier League protocols that they’ve set out, the club has to adhere to them. They’ve been second to none - the staff in here have been a different class and they’ve made it a safe environment for us to come and train. For me when people’s normal jobs start going back to normal and people are getting told to get back to work, for us, I don’t think there’s a safer place we can be. We are following everything, the doctors are staying on top of everything. Look I can understand people being a bit nervous. People in our squad were nervous about it at the start. I don’t think they are now. They see how safe we are being and no stone is left unturned. That’s what we’ve got to do but different players from different clubs have different views on it. That’s something the Premier League are working on, to get everything spot on and to keep everyone happy. We’ve done really well so far, everyone keeping to the rooms and doing everything that we need to do. Then we can hopefully get football back on the telly as I think it can give people around this country a big lift

[Andrew Robertson on Virgil van Dijk] Virg is the best defender in the world, and I love him being on the left-hand side with me. We have a good partnership on and off the pitch, and we help each other out. On the pitch especially. The big guy is absolutely class in everything he does. He’s a fantastic leader, a fantastic guy

[Jordan Henderson has captained Liverpool to the title] When you play with him, you train with him and see the way he acts off the field, it’s an absolute pleasure for him to be our captain

[Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has criticised recent VAR decisions in the Premier League and says it has put footballers in limbo] Over the last week, for me there has been four or five decisions that I think should have gone the other away, and I think many footballing people think they should have gone the other way too. I believe that the referees are relying on VAR, but then VAR isn’t overturning any decisions, so we are stuck in limbo. I’d prefer not to have it and just let the referee call it. If the referee called it, you’d say ‘OK, he’s seen it differently’. But the fact we have about 40 cameras and 40 different angles, I believe the decisions should be right

Obviously I’ve seen the video circulate since, and I shouldn’t have used the language that I did, but we were in a high-pressured game and emotions were on the line. I spoke to the referee and the officials in the tunnel after, and he explained what he thought he had seen - I respected that, not all referees do that - so fair play to him but I still thought he was in the wrong and that it was a penalty. That’s what we believe VAR was brought in to do [to change the decision]. For me, how that’s not a penalty, I still scratch my head over it
