Andy Robertson rolled his ankle during Tuesday night's disappointing defeat for Scotland against Northern Ireland.

Not only would it have had Steve Clarke sweating, but namely Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds are in the Premier League title race mix with Arsenal and Manchester City.

And with the season-run commencing this weekend now that international football is over until the summer, Robertson and everyone connected to Liverpool were rightly concerned as he hobbled off the Hampden Park turf before the first half was out.

However, the Daily Mail reports that both Liverpool and Scotland are hopeful that the left-back, 30, has avoided serious injury.

It's said that the defender returned to Merseyside today after taking part in Scotland duty over the past week. He underwent a scan, with the full extent of the damage still to be discovered.

But the early signs are that there's reason for Liverpool to be optimistic that the knock is not as bad as first feared.

It's not the first time Robbo has been injured while playing for Scotland this season. 

He spent three months on the sidelines after sustaining a shoulder injury against Spain in October following a collision with goalkeeper Unai Simon.

If his latest injury is not serious, then it would be a huge boost for both club and country.

Meanwhile, if Brendan Rodgers is banned for Celtic's upcoming derby match against Rangers, then conspiracy theorists will be out in full force. 

That's according to former Hoops defender Peter Grant.

The Northern Irishman, 51, will go before the Scottish FA's disciplinary panel at Hampden tomorrow following a notice of complaint sent his way for his comments about the matchday officials during Celtic's 2-0 loss to Hearts earlier this month.

Rodgers branded both Don Robertson and John Beaton, the referee and VAR on that day, as 'incompetent', resulting in the Celtic boss landing himself in hot water for the remarks.
