English Premier League side Liverpool has announced that defender Andrew Robertson has signed a new "long-term contract" with the club.

Robertson, 24, joined Liverpool from Hull City in July 2017 and became a mainstay in his debut season at Anfield, helping Jurgen Klopp's team reach the Champions League final, where they lost to Real Madrid.

The Scotland captain has continued to be a regular in 2018-19 and has started 20 of the 22 league matches for the Reds, who sit four points clear of reigning champions Manchester City at the summit.


Robertson Said: "As soon as the club came to me, it was a no-brainer for me - I want to stay here, so as soon as they put an offer on the table it was signed as quickly as that," Robertson told Liverpool's website.

"It was a pretty easy contract for me and I'm sure for the club as well. We both agreed very quickly, that's why it's been done so quickly. I hope to achieve success as a team over the course of this new deal.”

It has been reported that the new deal runs until 2024 and the left-back said negotiations went smoothly.
