It is safe to say that Andy Robertson has been missed since the shoulder injury he suffered in the October international break.
Kostas Tsimikas has unfortunately looked a bit inconsistent at times, and the likes of Luke Chambers and even Joe Gomez have had to fill in at times.
With the Reds looking like they will compete on multiple fronts this season, Robertson will be a crucial player towards those chances.
Speaking to Viaplay Sports UK, the Scotland skipper has provided an update on how his rehabilitation is going:
“Yeah, getting there, slowly but surely. Surgery was a success, which was the main thing, no complications from it.”
“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,” the 29-year-old said.
“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.”
Robertson is expected to be back fit in January, which is still more than a month away.
However, he admits that he is not thinking about a possible return date:
“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.”
