Scottish football fans could not be more proud of their fellow countryman, with many taking to social media to wish the former Queen’s Park and Dundee United left-back well. Here are just a few of the posts...
THE SINCERE COMMENTS
@n91__h: 5 years ago Andrew Robertson was playing against East Stirlingshire, Peterhead and Annan Athletic.
@Kenny_Millar: Amongst all the various herograms for Andy Robertson tonight, I love that he quietly sent a good luck message to a young Scottish player who has had a rough time with injury. Hasn’t changed a bit or forgotten where he came from. No wonder a country’s so collectively proud of him.
@SNPChris: In 5 years Andy Robertson has went from playing for Queens Park to the Champions League final. Absolutely brilliant. Well done, living every school boys dream.
@decmcmnus47: Andy Robertson: every footballer can learn from his journey that anything is possible for those who are willing to work for it.
@mjcotter99: Mental to think that I’m just finishing up with 1st year uni when only 5 years ago Andy Robertson was playing against Montrose for Queen’s Park in Scottish League 2
@kevin_coonie: Andy Robertson was released by Celtic at under 15 level as he was deemed too small and not good enough. Never had a pro deal with them. Only 2 Scottish clubs deserve credit and Celtic are not one of them.
@ScottishKits: Andy Robertson will become, if selected, the 1st Scot since Borussia Dortmund’s Paul Lambert to feature in the Champions League final ‘11
@DM97____: The rise of Andy Robertson from the Scottish League 2 to the Champions league Final just shows with hard work and determination anyone can achieve anything. Absolutely class from this lad!
@melbourne88: 16 years ago Andy Robertson was a chimney sweep on 8p an hour now he’s a champions league finalist. Amazing stuff
@AlanGreenwood_: Can’t believe Andy Robertson’s going to be playing in a Champions League final when just 3.8 billion years ago single-celled prokaryotic cells heralded the dawn of life on Earth.
@Sashwood_: Next person to tell me Andy Robertson used to play for Queen’s Park is getting drownt in the pool
@Kenny_Millar: Whatever Andy Robertson goes on to achieve, he’ll always be second-best to Lewis Stevenson. He’s been told that and reluctantly accepts it.
@davidpreece12: Well done to Britain’s Andy Robertson on getting to a Champions League Final.
@Oldfirmfacts1: Can’t believe Andy Robertson’s going to be playing in a Champions League final when just 25 minutes ago he was playing in a Champions League semi final
@aaronh_96: 6 year ago i was on the same pitch playing v Andy Robertson, now he’s in the Champions League Final and i’m working part time at JD sports for £6.50 an hour.
@craig_killie: 5 years ago, Andy Robertson’s Queen’s Park lost in the SFL2 play-off semi. This week, they face Stenhousemuir at the same stage.
