What Robertson has done with his UCL losers’ medal sums him up

Andrew Robertson was one of Liverpool’s better players in their Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid on the weekend.

The Scot has been somewhat of a revelation for the Reds this season, making the left-back position his own and improving with every game in a Liverpool shirt.

But unfortunately for Robertson his fairy tale came to an end on Saturday as Los Blancos ran out 3-1 winners over the Anfield club to win their third consecutive European title.

Robertson, along with the rest of his team-mates, collected a runners-up medal after the game to commemorate their day out and achievement in reaching the final.

But the left-back – ready to show his determination to win and not celebrate the defeat his side had just endured – stashed his at the bottom of his washbag, according to the Liverpool Echo.

"I don’t know what I will do with it. That’s for another day," Robertson said.

"It is still an achievement to get here but second is as good as last in my book. We wanted to win it. We were one step too short.

"It’s just devastation in the changing room. We are all upset. We have been on a good journey but we have just fallen short.

"Madrid have won it and are probably deserved winners. But, believe me, the lads are gutted."

Will Liverpool win the Champions League within the next five seasons?
