Liverpool has completed the signing of Scotland international left-back Andrew Robertson from relegated Hull City for a reported fee around £8 million and could ascend to £10m and has signed a long-term deal with the Merseysiders.
The 23-year old will wear the No 26 shirt at Anfield and become Jurgen Klopp’s third summer signing, following the arrival of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea and Mohamed Salah (Roma).
Robertson was playing in the Scottish third division just four years ago, having been on the edge of going to university before making the Queen’s Park first-team.
He at that point earned himself a move to Scottish Premiership side Dundee United before his fast rise earned him his move to Premier League side Hull City in 2014/15 season.
"A dream come true."

In a meeting with the Liverpool site, Robertson stated:
“It feels a wee bit surreal just now. Obviously, I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player.”
“My family are proud of what I’ve achieved so far and they’re all over the moon with the move, as well as me of course. We’re all just looking forward to being part of the Liverpool family now.”
“There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me.”
“I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”
