Andrew Robertson Had The Last Laugh After Luis Suarez Injured Him
Andy Robertson missed the second half of Liverpool's remarkable comeback against Barcelona after he was injured by Luis Suarez but the full back got the last laugh with his brilliant post match interview.
Luis Suarez promised before Barcelona's Champions League semi final second leg against Liverpool that he wouldn't celebrate if he scored at the ground he used to call home for three years.
That didn't stop the Anfield crowd booing the Barca striker for his fouling, diving, general shithousery and for the fact that he had celebrated a week earlier in the first leg, after scoring the opening goal.
However Suarez was left with egg on his face on Tuesday night because not only did he not get the chance to not celebrate but Liverpool won 4-0 to overturn the three goal deficit and go through to the final.
The biggest impact on the game the Uruguayan had was injuring Andy Robertson so the Scottish full back couldn't play in the second half, with his replacement Georginio Wijnaldum scoring twice.
After the match Robertson was asked about the fact that he was injured by Suarez and the former Hull City player had the perfect response:

Whilst Robertson couldn't continue in the second half it was his replacement and fellow full back Trent Alexander Arnold who had the biggest impact on the game.
The Reds had dominated much of the first half but only had the one goal to show for it, needing three without reply just to take it to extra time.
Wijnaldum's impact was swift as he scored in the 54th and 56th minutes to put Liverpool 3-0 up and set for extra time.
With the added 30 minutes looming Alexander Arnold's quick thinking at a corner allowed Divock Origi to score his second of the night and send them through to the final, and Robertson was clearly delighted:
WE'RE GOING TO MADRID :heart::heart:- Andrew Robertson (@andrewrobertso5) May 7, 2019
Jurgen Klopp's side will now face either Ajax or Spurs, with the pair playing their second leg on Wednesday, and a chance at redemption having lost in the final last year.
For Robertson redemption against Suarez came on the same night he was wronged.
