Liverpool left-back Robertson provides fitness update

Andy Robertson has provided an update on his recovery from shoulder surgery as the Liverpool left-back steps up his fitness.

Robertson has not featured since sustaining the issue while representing Scotland during October’s international break, with the defender’s shoulder problem requiring surgery.


The 29-year-old has now provided an update on his rehabilitation and confirmed surgery had been a success.

“Yeah, getting there, slowly but surely. Surgery was a success, which was the main thing, no complications from it,” Robertson told Viaplay Sports.

“So far, so good. I think I’m about three weeks since my surgery now, so everything is progressing well. Just bit by bit, got to take it week by week.

“Everything has gone well up to this point and hopefully that continues and then hopefully before we know it I’ll be back on the grass.”

On a potential return date, Robertson added: “I’ve not looked that far ahead yet [to a possible return date]. I’m just trying to take it week by week.

“I’m trying to not get frustrated, I’m not the best [when] injured. I’m trying to just take small wins every single week.

“I don’t want to put a game in mind and then I don’t make it or I come back before then. I’m just taking it slowly but surely just now, and then there’ll be a time to start pushing it – and when that comes, I’ll try to get on the pitch as quickly as I can.”
