Andy Robertson has played down rumours of a Celtic move by saying he wants to stay at Liverpool ‘forever’.
The Scotland international, 27, is a boyhood Celtic fan who has previously revealed his dream of playing for the 51-time league champions.
But the left-back has now pledged his future to Liverpool by saying he’d ‘love to retire’ at Anfield.
Speaking about a potential Celtic switch, Robertson told Scottish source PLZ Soccer: “I get asked this question a lot.
“Look, my aim is to finish at Liverpool, and I’d love to finish at Liverpool, but I know how tough it is to keep playing at the highest level. Time will come to make that decision.
“Right now I’ve still got a good length on my contract, I want to stay here forever and I hope to retire here, but you know if I keep going and I feel fit and I feel healthy, but when you get into your 30s things change, but I’d love to retire at this club.”
Robertson has been brilliant for the Reds since joining for an £8million fee in 2017. He’s become an integral player under Jurgen Klopp, helping Liverpool to win both the Premier League and Champions League.
The club’s most recent achievement was finishing third in the league, despite suffering from injuries to numerous important players.
One of those who has spent time on the sidelines is Jordan Henderson. The midfielder is on the road to recovery and was named in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man squad for the Euros.
Robertson named Henderson as his toughest potential opponent at the competition: “It’s [Jordan] Henderson for me, unfortunately.
“My captain, you know, he can get quite angry on the pitch when I’m on his team, so hopefully he doesn’t get angry at me when I’m on the opposite team.
“They [England] are full of quality. Obviously I know Hendo and I know Trent [Alexander-Arnold], hopefully he’ll be in the squad, and I know those two close and personally, so I know how good they are.”
Robertson is expected to captain Scotland when they take on Czech Republic in their first group stage clash on June 14.
They face the Three Lions on June 18 at 20:00.
