Andy Roberston appeared on the “We are Liverpool” podcast with co-hosts Robbie Folwer and Peter McDowall to discuss a range of topics. The Scotland international spoke about his love for Celtic and also Liverpool’s leadership group.
Robertson always comes across as a down to earth football. He has been an immense signing for Liverpool and during his time at Anfield he has gone on to become the record holder of assists as a defender in the Premier League.
Robertson spoke frankly about his love for the Scottish side.
“I grew up a massive Celtic fan.
“Had the season ticket, used to go to every home game in particular and try to go to some away games and things like that.
“Celtic was my life. Went to school and then you come back and you go in your garden and you pretend to be Henrik Larsson for instance.
“I was lucky. The team I grew up with was a fantastic Celtic team with Henrik Larsson, Chris Sutton, Stillain Petrov, all these players, Neil Lennon.
“So I had a really good team to watch. They were all my heroes. Celtic was it for me. I didn’t really watch much other football I was that focused on trying to watch Celtic and Celtic was in the Champions League.
“So that’s when I watched them play against English teams and stuff but I didn’t watch that much English football.
“I only watched really the Champions League when [English] teams played in it.
If a Celtic game was on and say Liverpool were playing Man United, I’d watch Celtic against Motherwell or whoever it was.”
“So it was always Celtic for me. I just didn’t really watch other football.”
