Andy Robertson is said to be worth £40 million off the back of a phenomenal season for Liverpool.
The former Dundee United man cemented his place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI in 2017 – and his ability and passion for the red shirt made him an immediate fan favourite.
Robertson left Tannadice for Hull City in July 2014 and played for the side until being bought by Liverpool for £8 million in summer 2017.
And last night Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson has claimed the Scotland international is now worth £40 million.
Robertson had another great game for the reds on Wednesday night as he helped the side to the Champions League final in Kiev – despite a 4-2 away loss to Roma.
Liverpool made it through to the final 7-6 on aggregate following a dramatic 5-2 victory over the Italian side at Anfield last week. They will face Real Madrid later this month.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Lawrenson said: “I cannot remember a poor game from him.
“What was it – £8.5m or something (they paid for him)? He is probably times that by five at the moment.”

Robertson could become the first Scot to play a Champions League final since Paul Lambert in 1997.
Speaking to BT Sport following the game, Robertson said: “Everyone’s been brilliant and we all deserve it. To look back at what I was probably doing last season – fighting for our lives at Hull and sadly we finished short.
“But this season, I had to take my time, but I feel as if I’m at home.”
Posting to Instagram following Wednesday night’s clash, he added: “WHAT A FEELING!! Champions league final!!
“Fans were incredible tonight, safe travels home!! See you all in KIEV.”
His career has been nothing short of meteoric, having started out playing for amateur side Queen’s Park in the 2012-13 season.
Robertson was a fan favourite at Tannadice during the 2013-14 season.
Huge congratulations to Andy Robertson. After the disappointment of losing the 2014 Scottish Cup Final against @St_Johnstone_FC, he gets to play in a final against another world-renowned club – Real Madrid this time. 😇💙🏴

The player earned an army of fans in The Kop after being selected as the team’s starting left-back by Klopp midway into the 2017-18 season.

Andy Robertson will be the first Scottish player to play in the Champions League final since Paul Lambert lifted the trophy with Borussia Dortmund in 1997. Darren Fletcher was an unused sub for Man Utd in 2008 & 2011.#Scotland
