Andy Robertson believes that young Liverpool defender Calvin Ramsay is already better than he was at his age.

Ramsay joined Liverpool from Aberdeen in the summer but has been limited to just two appearances for the Reds so far this season, due to injury and ’s desire not to rush the 19-year-old into first-team action.

Nevertheless, the right-back is highly-rated and received his first call-up to the Scotland squad for the November international against Turkey that will take place on Wednesday evening.

Fellow Liverpool full-back and Scotland captain Robertson has been impressed by his compatriots performances on the training ground and says his development is way ahead of his own.

‘I can help him and advise him, but I definitely wasn’t anywhere near Liverpool at his age’, the 28-year-old said.

‘I was only just starting my journey in football at the age he is. You can tell he’s young and has a lot of learning to do, but I’ll help him in every way possible.

‘He has an amazing future ahead. As long as he keeps listening and learning his career will be special, that’s for sure. When it’s your first camp and potentially first cap, Calvin and his family will all be excited.

‘It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks for him, making his Liverpool debut, getting his first start, now his call-up. But he’s been brilliant since he came.

‘He’s had to deal with his injury and he’s taken time to settle in. But now he’s a big part of our squad.

‘Liverpool see the potential in him and all the staff here with Scotland can too. He’s young and we have to protect him like we always do.

‘But it’s exciting for him and I hope he gets time on the pitch. If he does get a cap, he’ll never forget that first one.’

Somewhat of a late-bloomer, Robertson was rejected by Celtic’s academy as a teenager and worked his way up the footballing ladder before moving to Anfield in 2017.

At Liverpool he has blossomed into one of the best left-backs in the world, helping the Reds win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.
