Scotland captain Andy Robertson has declared himself ready to face the next exciting challenge of his career.
It has already been a fabulous start to the season for Robertson, thanks to his being appointed skipper of his national team by manager Alex McLeish.
It just gets bigger and bigger for the former Dundee United man, though, as he prepares to tackle Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and the rest when Paris Saint-Germain visit Anfield in the Champions League tonight.
Robertson, of course, had all of Scotland cheering him on in the final last May against Real Madrid, where he played well despite finishing on the losing side.
It will be another massive challenge for the 24-year-old but he has passed every test so far and is confident the Reds can start their Group C campaign with a win.
He said: “It was a bittersweet ending last season because we lost the final but the Champions League was great for all of us.
“Hopefully, we can do something similar and even go one better this time around.
“PSG is a tough start because they are a top team but we believe we are a top team as well.
“If you are going to get far in this competition and win the trophy then you have to play a lot of great teams along the way.
“Our group is difficult. PSG at home is a tough test but I’m sure they will be looking at us and thinking the same.
“They are a top team but we are confident of being able to get off on the right footing.
“We have learned a lot about ourselves as a group, as individuals and as a club.
“It’s all well and good being great entertainers but you need to win trophies and be challenging for the league.
“What happened last season has brought us all closer together and made us even hungrier for success.
“It’s a long season and plenty can happen but hopefully this will be a successful season for us.”
One of the first people to congratulate Robertson on being named Scots captain was his club boss Jurgen Klopp.
Robertson is loving working with the German, whom he believes to be a “world-class” coach.
“The manager texted me straight away when he heard the news about the captaincy,” added the left-back.
“He was delighted for me and said that in a nice message.
“He always follows everyone when they are away with the national team.
“He is a world-class manager and everyone buys in to what he’s saying and how he wants us to play.”
