Latest Liverpool news: Andy Robertson misses out on training due to insect bite

The Liverpool Echo reports that Andy Robertson returned to Melwood on Saturday along with Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum.

However, the report adds that the Scotland captain could not participate in the normal drills after having undergone surgery on his right hand to clear up an infection.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the 25-year-old left-back had been bitten by an insect, and had to undergo surgery (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“It’s unlucky, he got bitten by something not so good – not a dog, I think it was a spider or a mosquito – and it got infected. It’s not a massive problem apart from throw-ins!

“He should be back in training in a couple of days. The rest is good, he could do all of the programme he had to do.”

The report adds that Robertson was never going to face Bradford on Sunday, and will travel with the team for the upcoming US tour.

A key member of the team

The Scot was one of our best players from the previous season and could get even better in the upcoming campaign.

The left-back has become an integral part of this Liverpool team, thanks to his energy up and down the left flank, and his crosses provide an attacking threat too.

Robbo has come a long way since his days in Scotland and is currently the best left-back in the Premier League.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!
