LIVERPOOL are set to offer Andy Robertson a new £60,000-a-week deal after an impressive start to his Anfield career.

According to reports, the left back has done enough to double his wages, following an eye-popping first 12 months on Merseyside.

The 24-year-old helped Liverpool reach the Champions League final after he signed from Hull for £10million the summer before.

The club’s board have been impressed and want to tie up a new deal soon, according to the Mirror.

Robertson played 30 games in his first season and rotated with James Milner at left back, allowing Klopp to deploy the Englishman in midfield as well.

But the Scotland international is expected to make the left side of defence berth his own in the future, with time well on his side.

The ex-Dundee United and Queen’s Park ace has 21 caps for his country and is expected to be one of Alex McLeish’s more trusted stars in the future.

Liverpool boss Klopp branded Robertson as “special” in February after the Reds beat Porto 5-0 in the Champions League.

The German said: “It was really good. The whole package, offensively and defensively, was really good. I would say it was his best game.

“When he played in Scotland or in Hull it was quite a distance to go to a Champions League tie and now he played it – and in that manner, even better.

“We didn’t speak before the game about his debut, we handled it like business as usual, and he did really well.

“I saw him in the dressing room before the game deep breathing – it’s special, it’s really special.”
