Scotland star Andrew Robertson was in dreamland after helping Liverpool complete the job on Manchester City last night and book their place in the last four of the Champions League.

Now the former Queen’s Park and Dundee United star is confident his side can go on and win the whole tournament after a stunning double over the Premier League champions-elect.

The 23-year-old put in another sterling performance at the Etihad as Jurgen Klopp’s side absorbed heavy City pressure and doused a potential fightback to win 2-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate.

To put in context Robertson ‘s meteoric rise to the top, exactly five years earlier he had been playing in front of a few hundred as Queen’s Park lost 2-0 to Annan in a Scottish League Two fixture.

And, asked if the achievement ranked as a career highlight, he told the Liverpool website: “I would say so.

“Getting to the semi-finals of the Champions League as a wee boy you grow up watching these tournaments and you think what it’s like to play in it.

“We’ve just knocked out one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. Luckily we’ve managed to do that and we are in the semi-final.

“Hopefully I’ll get a chance to play in the games and lead this club back to a final – and hopefully a sixth Champions League.”

Now Robertson, who returned from injury to play a key role in the victory, hopes to join the growing list of Scottish winners of the trophy by securing a place in the final in Kiev in May.

Asked if he thought the Anfield side could go all the way he told talkSPORT: “Yeah, I think so, yeah!

“We’re in the last four. We’re in touching distance. But we know how hard it’s going to be.

“There’s going to be no easy tie in this semi-final. Everyone’s fighting for their lives to try to get into this final and we’ll be no different.”
