    Robbo

    From the BBC Garth Crooks Team of the Week:

    Andy Robertson: I just love watching this kid play. Apart from anything else, he has nerves of steel. The ball he played for Georginio Wijnaldum to score was just wonderful and the side-foot volley when Sadio Mane should have scored was just sensational.
    There is nothing more frustrating for a striker than a full-back who offers nothing going forward and I've played with enough to know. Robertson is a striker's dream and the best I've seen since Ashley Cole.

    Attitude and ability. Hes an advert for the game of football. Always remember looking across at him after 2014 cup final. Could tell he was hurting and not a player that deserved to be on the losing side

    According to them Tierney is a better defender. How the fck do they come to that conclusion.
    Who does he ever have to defend against?
    Livi, Hamilton, Dundee?
    And when he does have to defend against PSG and Barca we see how well he does.

    Teirney's an excellent player. Would be interesting to see him play in a better league like Andy or he might take the easy way out like Broonie and stay with they cnts.

    Would be FAF if he signed for Southampton lol.

    I think you might be right about him staying a big fish in a small pool. It must be tempting to do that but the real top players want to test themselves against the best snd its fantastic watching Andy do it.

    And aye it would be funny if he signed for Southampton. More likely to sign for Rogers next club down there.

    Yeah quite possibly. He's not getting a big club like Liverpool again after hiding from challenges at Celtic but you could see him at Southampton or the likes of Leicester

    Must admit I like Tierney as a footballer. He does need to move to prove how good he is. Broon stayed with Celtic as he knew he would never get away with his fouling anywhere else.
    As for Andy Robertson he should be used a great example how listening, learning and 100% application can take you to the top. He is a great inspiration to young Scottish players and a great example on how to conduct yourself in the game

    was at the Man Utd PSG game last night and mega surprised to hear Robertson get a mention from a few 'locals' who were slagging Luke Shaw.

    Robbo has got where he is from attitude first and let the quality develop. Still laugh at the chunt next to team moaning how far we have dropped signing queens park LBs. I didnt know who he was but the motherwell goal and performance left me totally in shock. How the **** can there be players in scotland like that. Well hope our new youth system unearths them. They exist but most get lost in culture and old firm and attitude.

    He has been to a few games since he left as well. Play offs against hamilton included. Got to be the best ever one season signing we have made??
