Liverpool’s Andy Robertson is injured
As confirmed by the BBC, Liverpool and Scotland international Andy Robertson is now injured.
In a blow for the Reds left-back, Robertson has suffered a hamstring injury at the start of the summer.
Robertson’s injury meant the Liverpool star missed Scotland’s 3-0 defeat to Belgium in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Brussels on Tuesday night.
Last week Robertson scored a stunner for Scotland in a 2-1 win over Cyprus at Hampden Park.

Will Andy Robertson be fit for the start of the 2019-20 season?
Sky Sports have suggested that Robertson may miss the beginning of the 2019-20 season.
The broadcaster have also revealed what Scotland manager Steve Clarke has said about Robertson’s injury:
It’s disappointing to lose someone of Andy’s experience – certainly for a game like this.
He tried everything he could [to be ready for today], he did the training session last night, but he woke up and still felt it so no good. And it is a great chance for Greg Taylor.
Highlights: Belgium 3 – Scotland 0
