Liverpool’s summer of trying to give everybody a new contract continues as the club sought to tie down the world’s best left back for the foreseeable future with a new deal for the Scotland international running through the summer of 2026.
Robertson today officially joined fellow fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold as well as Fabinho Tavares, Virgil van Dijk, and Alisson Becker in signing a new deal, with the also now working on new deals for Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson.
“I think it’s no secret that I’m happy at this club,” the indefatigable 27-year-old said of his decision to put pen to paper and extend his stay on Merseyside. “I want to stay at this club for as long as possible and I’m glad that the journey is continuing.”
That Liverpool journey for Robertson began as a largely unheralded £8M arrival from relegated Hull City in 2017, a signing who lacked the headlining excitement some fans crave and who started out as competition for Alberto Moreno.
It didn’t take very long, though, for Robertson to win over his new manager and then every last Liverpool fan as he established himself as first choice on the left over his first six months—then grew into the game’s best player at his position.
Now, after establishing himself as that as well as playing a key role in the club winning the Champions League, Premier League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup, he has a new contract and wants to take the next step and achieve even more.
“I still remember the day as if it was yesterday when I signed here,” he noted. “Obviously you have ambitions to become a regular player for Liverpool, to win trophies for this club, to do everything else, but the way it’s gone has been excellent.
“But since the very start of my career I’ve always been one to look forward. I want to [win] more and obviously hopefully starting with this season. We want to achieve more, we want to bring hopefully more trophies, more happiness to this club.”
