Robertson admits ‘difficult situation’ with Gerrard but expects Liverpool legend to succeed Klopp

The Scotland international has made no secret of his Celtic allegiance and admits he finds it hard to wish a Reds icon good luck at Rangers.

Andy Robertson admits to being in a “difficult situation” against Steven Gerrard, with the Liverpool rear left a lawyer Celtic fan, but he expects a Reds icon return to Anfield in a management capacity at some point in the near future.

A man still held in high regard by those in the Red Half of Merseyside cut his teeth in Scotland.

Gerrard turned Rangers in title hopes throughout his time in Glasgow, with a 21-point lead over Old Firm rivals Celtic in the current campaign.

Robertson, whose loyalties rest heavily on the Hoops, admits he finds it difficult to wish a Liverpool much good during his time at Ibrox.

The Scotland international told Jamie Carragher on the Podcast of the best games: “It’s a difficult situation isn’t it?

“You come to the Liverpool training ground. It’s coated all over the place, everyone loves it, everyone wants it to be successful.

“I want him to do well… but I was raised as a Celtic fan to dislike anything to do with Rangers.

Carragher replied: “So this is an exclusive, Andy Robertson doesn’t like Steven Gerrard!”

Robertson, who helped Liverpool Champions League and Premier League crowns during his time at Anfield, added a man who continues to be presented as the natural successor of Jurgen Klopp: “Not quite because I think he will end up here one day. Jokes aside, he did an amazing job up there.

“He’s taken to a new level this season and Celtic have struggled to keep up.

“Hopefully over the next six months Celtic will close the gap and get to 10 in a row because that would be historic – but it doesn’t look too likely now.

Gerrard has tried to sidestep the debate which has seen him linked with a return to Anfield, but a touching home comeback has obvious appeal to ex-Liverpool and England captain.

He said Athletic: “I am often asked this question and, for me, what will be. Would I like to be Liverpool’s coach one day? Is it a dream? Of course.

“It’s a club that means everything to me, but we are one of the best, if not the best, managers in the world which has been absolutely amazing since he walked through the door and the success he has achieved. these last two years mean that Liverpool are in a fantastic place. May this continue for a long time.
