      Welcome home Andy.





      Liverpool FC can confirm the signing of Andy Robertson from Hull City.

      The Scotland international put pen to paper on a long-term contract at Melwood on Friday after completing a medical.

      Speaking shortly after completing his move, the 23-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com: “It feels a wee bit surreal just now. Obviously I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player.

      “My family are proud of what I’ve achieved so far and they’re all over the moon with the move, as well as me of course. We’re all just looking forward to being part of the Liverpool family now.

      “There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me.

      “I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”

      One of those signings where I just think at the end of the season we'll be thinking we've stolen this kid from Hull for £10million.

      I watch a lot of Premiership, and the problem with Hull was not the defense but their attack. Their attack was horrible. He got a bargain.

      Jürgen Klopp has been singing the praises of Andrew Robertson...

      "For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time," he told the club website.

      "I love his story; where we has come from professionally to reach this point. "When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football - he really loves the game.

      "His attitude is outstanding - absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills - also very, very good.

      "He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better. I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition."

      Good to see we've finally got a left-footed left-back.

      All the best Andy, give your best for the shirt and you won't go far wrong.

      F**k Yes :D :P What I had in mind was that do not judge this guy because his club was relegated. If he came from Spain and was called Robertino, we would be saying what a signing.

      I wouldn't say their defense wasn't a problem, it was the worst in the league. They conceded the most (80 and kept the least amount of clean sheets (5).

      Welcome to the club, Andy! It's going to be interesting to see if he does enough during the rest of pre-season to win the starting spot for the Watford game.

      Pace, skill, strength, game intelligence, and a left boot, this lad has all the tools to be a top LB for us.

      Happy with this, a cheap left back with experience, but then, I was happy when we signed Moreno....

      It was but the fault was because their midfield and attack did not do them any good. Nonetheless, I believe it is a good signing.

      Think we all knew this one was happening some time ago, thankfully over the line now and wish him all the best.

      Hope he puts Milner out of a job at LB.

      Exactly my thoughts,

      Best of luck Andy, welcome to the best club in the world!!

      If Andy and Trent end up as the starting fullbacks, we will have three players who can cover at both right and left back (Clyne, Gomez and Milner).

      Not mad on the transfer but he must be absolutely buzzing to signvfor Liverpool.

      Any natural lefty at left back (Moreno aside) has to be an improvement in our attacking play. Good luck to him!

      This is a terrible signing. I don't know what we were thinking. Bottom of the barrel LB doesn't solve our problems. I wonder why Robertson was so easy to sign :roll:

      I'm sure many would have said the same if we had signed Bertrand or Davies a couple seasons back.

      You can shut up too. Not in the mood for your garbage. We have Barca trying to poach Coutinho, Keita and VVD is still not signed.... and we sign area we badly need quality from a relegated side! Arsenal signed a very good left back, didn't see them checking in the bargin bin. It was either us or Burnley, nobody else was interested.

      After reading your comments I think Robertson will end up there with the legends of Anfield when his time here is finished; no better indicator of quality then to have your stamp of disapproval.

      It's a bargain! £8 mil these days, for a experienced LB with tonnes of potential, good signing!

      Not that I care a little what they think but even scum fans I know think this a good signing, and we could sign Messi and they'd downplay it somehow...

      People just like to be yes men and agree like sheep rather than speak what they really think, stick a poll on here if we should have signed Robertson and NO will win by a landslide.

      Just to engage you in a bit of actual debate for a second because I understand your opinion on this one.... I would rather (if we are going to skimp out a little on a position) do it at left back.

      PROVIDING that we now go out and land VVD and Naby Keita or if those players are genuinely not availiable, the best alternatives our money can buy.

      I am a dickhead who would have signed Jose Gaya from Valencia or Pereria from Nice, not Robertson from Hull. I want to win Champions League not the Championship. Rodriguez from Wolfburg was my preference but Milan signed him. Honestly think it is a matter of time before Jose Gaya ends up at Arsenal or Spurs. If Spurs get Jose Gaya now, we will see a melt down on here. These are people we should be going for, but we are just not.
