Another Brilliant Gesture From Andy Robertson Surfaces

Andy Robertson has set the world alight with Liverpool, but that doesn't mean he's not as grounded as ever.

The Reds defender has been one of the standout performers for Jurgen Klopp's men this season, helping them earn a second consecutive fourth-place spot and remarkably progress to the Champions League final. The club could well win its sixth Champions League trophy (formerly European cup) this season.

But despite the glitz and glamour that comes with being a successful professional footballer, another gem of a story has been unearthed involving the Scotsman.

Robertson recently told The Guardian: "A normal 21st birthday present is a bottle of vodka or champagne and during the season I don't drink. At the end of the season I have a few beers with my old man. So if someone wants to buy me a bottle of vodka, I'd rather they donate the £20."

Pretty generous from Robertson, there. But it's not the first story like this to emerge about the 24-year-old.

The player heard that a young fan sent money to a food-bank and so Robertson wrote him this classy letter with a signed Roberto Firmino shirt. Not bad going.

It's great to see. And it seems as though Robertson hasn't forgot his roots. When a tweet emerged from his account from way back in 2012, everyone was inspired.

It said how life is rubbish with no money. The player was seemingly trying to break through into a professional career back then. It's great to see how much he's thrived in the sport since then, showing that certain achievements take time to conquer.Steven Caulker

So Fair play to Robertson. He sounds like such a humble bloke. We wish him the best with his career.
