Andy Robertson appeared to suffer an ankle injury for Scotland in what could be a huge blow to Liverpool.

The left-back had already missed a large chunk of the season due to a shoulder injury he suffered on international duty in October.

Robertson returned to full fitness and regained his spot in the Liverpool starting XI but could now face another setback.

During Scotland’s friendly against Northern Ireland, he went down holding his ankle before getting back to his feet.

However, moments after his Liverpool teammate Conor Bradley scored for Northern Ireland, Robertson had to be substituted.

The 30-year-old looked distraught before he exited the field of play, with Reds fans certainly having cause for concern.

Robertson becomes the latest in a long line of injuries to the other Premier League title-chasing sides with Arsenal star Bukayo Saka withdrawing from England duty prior to the defeat to Brazil.

Meanwhile, Kyle Walker and John Stones have also picked up knocks while with England.

Robertson has made 20 appearances for Liverpool this season and has been key in ensuring they remain title challengers.

Premier League success isn’t their only aim though, with the Reds set to play Atalanta in the Europa League quarter-finals.

However, they could be without Robertson for their upcoming crucial games in the season run-in.

Kostas Tsimikas could be set to replace him in the starting XI, with Joe Gomez also able to play at left-back.
