Andy Robertson’s assist against Fulham on Sunday brought his tally to five for the season, and the Scotland captain is happy to continue contributing in that way if it means winning games.
The left-back went very close to finding the net himself later in the game but his powerful drive was tipped over by goalkeeper Sergio Rico.
And while Robertson would like to add to his single solitary goal for Liverpool, he’s just as content providing assists for his teammates.
“It was close,” Robertson said of his shot, according to LiverpoolFC.com.
“We did a shooting session [in training ahead of the game] and I scored two; the gaffer pulled me afterwards and said, ‘I’m so proud of you!’ Obviously he was just joking!
“I thought to just get a clean contact – the ‘keeper has made a good save. I think I could have done better with it. Hopefully it’s coming but I’m happy to hopefully keep giving assists and clean sheets, that’s my bread and butter.
“I love assisting because it’s a lot more natural to me than scoring. If I can help the team by putting a cross in for Shaq – and he made a great finish – it’s always nice to get an assist and contribute going forward.
“We have had a lot of clean sheets this season and we need to keep doing that because if we get a clean sheet, that’s half the battle to win the game.”
