ANDY ROBERTSON has said that he often thinks about signing for Celtic. The left back became a Premier League winner with Liverpool this season but whilst he admits he can see himself retiring on Merseyside, he would love the opportunity to pull on the Green and White Hoops.
Speaking to the Lockdown Tactics podcast, Robertson admitted that the dream of playing for Celtic is something that is own his mind even if he has found a home at Anfield. The 26-year-old still wants to play for the Scottish Champions but not as a gimmick in the twilight of his career as he considers potentially retiring with Liverpool.
“It’s something that I think about quite a lot to be honest.
“As my career started to progress, if you had asked me at Hull would I have liked to have gone back up to Celtic I’d have said 100 per cent I want to play for the club I have supported all my life.
“But now I’ve kind of found a home at Liverpool. I love playing for this club and playing at the highest level and if I could retire at Liverpool I’d bite your hand off for it now.
“Playing at this club is amazing the way you get looked after, the way the fans are, and playing at Anfield every second week is incredible. In an ideal world I retire here but I know how hard that is going to be.
“When I was younger I wanted to play for Celtic and have my best years at Celtic. I didn’t want to be 33, 34 and hanging on and going up there when I knew my best years were gone.”
Robertson was released from Celtic before starting his career with Queens Park. A move to Jackie McNamara’s Dundee United followed resulting in a move to Hull City. The Tigers were relegated but Robbo signed an £8m deal to Jurgen Klopp’s side. One Champions League, One European Super Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup and now a Premier League winners medal vindicate Robertson’s feelings about wanting to stay at Liverpool, even if he still harbours hope of joining Celtic.
