Ally McCoist sent the Reds ace his congratulations after last night’s heroics.
Andy Robertson captained to Scotland to victory in last night’s win over Serbia and afterwards, the Liverpool ace received a message of congratulations from Tartan Army hero Ally McCoist.
Steve Clarke’s team ended 24 years of hurt in qualifying for next summer’s tournament, edging past the Serbians after a penalty shootout.
Ryan Christie’s goal had seemingly seen Scotland home in the 90 minutes but Luka Jovic’s late equaliser meant a nailbiting extra 30 minutes.
After the game, Robertson took to Twitter to post a heartfelt message of pride to his teammates, with McCoist taking the time to respond.
McCoist was part of the last Scotland squad to head to a European Championships in 1996.
Back then he can’t have imagined that it would take the nation so long to qualify again.
Robertson is a real jewel in Scotland’s crown and his meteoric rise at Liverpool is quite something.
The 26-year-old has won the Champions League and Premier League with the Reds since a £10 million arrival from Hull City in 2017.
He earns £100,000-a-week at Anfield and in tandem with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool have two of the best full-backs in Europe.
The challenge for Robertson now is to stay fit for the Reds and maintain his sharpness ahead of next summer.
Scotland will be in a group alongside England, Croatia and the Czech Republic and the Tartan Army won’t be fazed.
Clarke’s men have picked up recently and their qualification is their just rewards for some positive form.
With the team spirit sky high you’d be a brave man to back against Scotland pulling off a shock or two next summer.
