Andy Robertson was supportive of Liverpool teammate Mo Salah who he felt had been a ‘superb’ performer for the Reds even amid all the speculation surrounding his future.

For now, however, he very much appears to be committed to the cause at Anfield – and what a cause it is with the Reds top of the table as things currently stand at the time of writing.
