Sir Alex Ferguson has lavished praise on Liverpool star Andy Robertson, describing him as “unbelievable”.

The 26-year-old has made 171 competitive appearances for Liverpool, registering five goals and 35 assists, since his move from Hull City four years ago for a reported £8million.

At international level, the Scotland captain has helped his country qualify for Euro 2020, which takes place this summer.

Steve Clarke’s charges have been drawn in a tough group which also includes the likes of World Cup finalists Croatia, the Czech Republic and England.

But Ferguson believes that with players like Robertson, Kieran Tierney and Scott McTominay, Scotland can shine.

“I look at the midfield players and I think they are as good as anyone, players playing in England,” the former Manchester United boss is quoted by Metro as saying.

“(Kieran) Tierney has been fantastic at Arsenal, absolutely fantastic, Robertson the last two years at Liverpool has been unbelievable.

“(Scott) McTominay is now emerging as one of Man United’s big players… (John) McGinn coming through at Aston Villa has been fantastic, (Kenny) McLean at Norwich has had a great season.

“So I’m optimistic. The important thing about the home games is, I know it’s only 12,000 people, but 12,000 at Hampden when they get going is like 50,000 at Wembley. We can create the atmosphere all right.”
