Liverpool handed a major boost as Andy Robertson returns to the training pitch to work on his fitness alone, just NINE days after suffering ankle ligament damage in pre-season friendly
- Andy Robertson posted a picture of himself running on his Twitter account
- Robertson sustained the injury during a pre-season friendly earlier this month
- Scans revealed the injury wasn’t as bad as first feared and surgery wasn’t needed
Andy Robertson has stepped up his return from injury just over a week after sustaining ankle ligament damage.
The Liverpool left-back posted a picture of himself running outside on his Twitter account, hinting that he may return to first team action sooner than expected.
Robertson picked up the injury during a pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao earlier this month.

The 27-year-old appeared to sustain the injury to his right ankle when he blocked a cross during the first half against the LaLiga side.
However, scans revealed the injury wasn’t as severe as it could have been and as a result surgery was not required.
The Reds certainly didn’t miss Robertson after they comfortably dispatched Norwich 3-0 at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah ensured Liverpool got their Premier League campaign off to the perfect start.
Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas seamlessly slotted into Liverpool’s defence, meaning it’s unlikely Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will rush Robertson back before he’s fully fit.
Next up for the Reds is a home game against Burnley on August 21.
