Gary Neville Hails Full-Back Who's The Best In The Premier League 'By A Mile'

​Gary Neville has named the best full-back in the Premier League, calling him the 'best by a mile' in glowing praise. 

​Neville named his Premier League Team of the Season on Monday Night Football following Newcastle United's victory over Arsenal. 

And, unlike Jamie Carragher, he selected Andy Robertson at left-back and hailed the Scotland international as the 'best full-back in the league'.

Robertson has enjoyed another stellar campaign, starring at left-back as Liverpool fight on FOUR fronts this season.

He's been brilliant for the Reds who have already bagged the EFL Cup and FA Cup ahead of facing Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The 28-year-old has recorded an impressive 13 assists and weighed in with two goals in all competitions this season.

Speaking about Robertson, Neville told Sky Sports: "I absolutely love Joao Cancelo but I can’t ignore Robertson.

"The best full-back in the league by a mile - he does both things incredibly well, eight and nine, this is not Mr. Steady, eight and nines out of 10 every week."

The Manchester United legend referenced Trent Alexander-Arnold, adding: "Him down the left hand side when it matters, hurting, he is unbelievable.

"He does more than you know, obviously he’s been overshadowed at times by Trent, who has unbelievable delivery which is good to watch. But Robertson is the best full-back in the league by a mile.

"In terms of attacking and defensive content, I think putting both together he’s the best by a mile."​

That's high praise considering the league boasts the likes of Alexander-Arnold not to mention Manchester City duo Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo, who both featured in Neville and Carragher's Premier League Team of the Season
