Andy Robertson's Brilliant Tweet From 2012 Shows How Far He's Come

Andy Robertson's Brilliant Tweet From 2012 Shows How Far He's Come

Andy Robertson's rise to prominence has been astonishing and one tweet from the man himself in 2012 perfectly demonstrates it.

The tweet, sent from an 18-year old Robertson back in August 2012, has been doing the rounds after the Scotland international played a key role in Liverpool reaching an eighth European Cup final.

Six years ago, playing for Queen's Park in the Scottish Third Division, where the money wasn't great, he tweeted about needing to get another job because he had no money.

Andy Robertson's Hamstring Blow Means Liverpool's First-Choice Defenders Are Injured

But Robertson serves as a reminder that hard work pays off. After spending his time playing in front of 200 spectators in the lower echelons of Scottish football, he got a move to Dundee United after excelling for the Glasgow club and was later snapped up by Hull City for just short of £3 million a year later.

He spent three years at the KCOM Stadium, including two in the Premier League - and clearly caught the eye of Liverpool, who snapped him up for a bargain price of £8 million.

Fast forward to the present day and Robertson produced another industrious display at left-back at the Stadio Olimpico as the Reds' set up a showdown with Real Madrid in Kiev.

"It's been an unbelievable journey from the start to now," he said.

"When I signed here, I dreamed of these nights and I took my time to find my feet but I'm here now. We've got a few big games coming up but now we've got to look forward to Kiev and hopefully I can play a big part in it."
