Andy Robertson Has Come A Long Way In Just Five Years
Just one year on from Andy Robertson's move from Hull City to Liverpool it's worth looking at the full backs incredible rise in the last few years.
Exactly five years on from playing for Queen's Park and losing 2-0 to Annan in the lower echelons of Scottish football, he was part of the Liverpool side that beat Manchester City 5-1 to progress to the Champions League semi-final.
And now he's playing in the Champions League final against the European champions, Real Madrid.
One of the bargains of the season after arriving for a mere £8 million from Hull City, he has been a revelation and was excellent over both legs against City.
Back in 2013, a very young Robertson played in front of just 242 spectators in the Scottish third division and he marked the anniversary last night by putting in another exceptional performance at left-back.
After the game, he took to Twitter to joke it was a "bit better result".

After moving from Hull last summer he 'saved' himself from playing back in the Championship and, after initially struggling to break into the Liverpool first team, he eventually became a first team regular.
Robertson became a fans favourite as he helped the Reds into the Champions League final, losing of course to Real Madrid.
He endeared himself further to fans in Merseyside by sending a signed shirt to a young fan who gave his pocket money to charity:
It was a hell of a first season for Robertson and an incredible five years.
