Andy Robertson has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, the Premier League side have announced.

The Scotland international, who has spent the past four years at Anfield, is reported to have agreed a deal that runs through until 2026.

Robertson joins fellow defenders Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk, plus goalkeeper Alisson and midfielder Fabinho, in agreeing fresh terms to commit his future to the Reds.

“Obviously when the negotiations started and it looked as if my future was going to be here longer term than what it was, then I think it’s no secret that I’m happy at this club,” he told the club’s website.

“I want to stay at this club for as long as possible and to extend my stay, it’s always a happy time for me, for my family.

“We’re settled here, we love everything about this football club and I’m glad that the journey is continuing.”

Robertson has established himself as a regular for Liverpool on the left side of their defence since joining from Hull City, the 27-year-old making 177 appearances for the club in all competitions.

He featured 36 times for the Reds in their Premier League-winning campaign two seasons ago and played in all but one of their matches en route to lifting the Champions League in 2019, a year after losing to Real Madrid in the final.

Robertson has also won the Club World Cup and Super Cup during his time on Merseyside and is hoping to add more silverware to his collection.

“When you sign for a massive club, I still remember the day as if it was yesterday when I signed here and obviously you have ambitions to become a regular player for Liverpool, to win trophies for this club, to do everything else but the way it’s gone has been excellent,” he said.

“But since the very start of my career I’ve always been one to look forward: that’s in the past, that’s something that I can sit down with the people who want to listen to me when I’ve hung up my boots and retired and I can tell them all the stories that we’ve already made.

“But I’m certainly one, and I know a lot of people in this training ground just now are people to look forward and people [who want] to create more history, more stories. Hopefully people get bored of me when I’ve retired and I can sit down for hours and hours and tell them about all the stories!”

While yet to feature at the start of the 2021-22 season due to an ankle injury, Robertson is back in full training and could make a return against Chelsea on Saturday.
