Yes, everyone knows about his Legendary status with Liverpool and Scottland. However, not many fans have read our version of Andy Robertson’s Biography, which is quite interesting. Now, without further ado, let’s Begin.

Andy Robertson Childhood Story – Early Life and Family Background:

For Biography starters, he bears the full name – Andrew Henry Robertson. Andy Robertson was born on the 11th day of March 1994 in Glasgow, Scotland. He grew up with his little brother and parents.

His early knocks in football have seen him stay grounded. Young Robertson attended St Ninian’s High School in Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, from 2006 to 2012, where he captained their football team.

From his school team, young Robertson went on to play for Giffnock Soccer Centre and joined Celtic as a youth but was released at the under-15 level because he was considered too timid to play at the highest level.

Without a doubt, he had difficulties with his body build, with height being a big factor. A crushing disappointment, he says, inspired him to prove the sceptics wrong.

In Andy’s words…“There was a transition going on at Celtic at the time when a new head of youth (Chris McCart) had come in.

I didn’t fit his bill. He came from Motherwell, who were full of big lads and were physical. He ignored me from the moment he set his eyes on my tiny body.

Yes, I was small. I’m still not big now, but it took me time to grow and fill out to this stage. Looking back on it now, it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

I didn’t like him for it but it was the best decision for me. Being rejected was hard because I was a Celtic fan from birth but it really helped me become the man I am.

Andy Robertson Biography – Facing Realities and Recovery:

After his release from the Celtics, Andy worked in Hampden Park, taking phone calls and attending to ticket orders for games. He would also sell tickets for Robbie Williams’ concerts.

After the day’s sales for tickets, young Robertson would stick to training for a few hours before returning home. He never gave up on football after being chased by the Celtics.

In his words…“For the first three or four months after I got released, I didn’t have a good job, and my parents had to fund me. I could only earn little, which I shared with my little brother.”

Andy Robertson Bio – Rise to Fame Story:

It took nearly an entire season for Robertson to get over the Celtic disappointment.

After much time staying idle, having much of schooling and less of football, Luck came to his side as he got lucky to be signed into Queen’s Park’s youth academy in 2012.

Unfortunately, he still wasn’t good enough in his first year at Queens Park. He was still nowhere near the standard required.

But that tough period didn’t last long as he later improved after his youth academy graduation and upon joining Dundee United a year later.

Hull City bought him after he won the SPFA Young Player of the Year and after he got called to make his international debut with Scotland.

However, Robertson’s stock continued to rise at every step of the way. At this time more than ever, he was spurred on by a burning desire to prove wrong those who had cast him aside when he was 15. 

In his words…“For every club I go to, they gave me two years – the first year to try and settle in, and then the second season to really kick on. 

But luckily in the first season, I just hit the ground running, and I made the left back position my own.”

Again, it didn’t take long before Liverpool started to scout him and eventually purchased his services for an undisclosed fee.

As I update Andy Robertson’s Bio, he has been an undisputed left-back for Liverpool. It took years before the club could boast of Kostas Timikas – a footballer who could challenge Robo for his left-back role. The rest of Robo’s Bio, as they say, is now history.

Andy Robertson and Rachael Roberts Love Story:

Upon signing with Liverpool, Andy felt he needed someone in his life. Something to guide his emotions and help him manage pressure.

It was indeed a busy time for Robertson. Adjusting to life as part of Jurgen Klopp‘s squad is accompanied by something. That was no other than searching for the love of his life. Which he found in Rachael Roberts, pictured below.

Andy Robertson Family Life:

Robo is always grateful to his parents of middle-class family background. Persons who allowed him to have all options to make it in life as he has done. In his words…

I was grateful to my mum and dad because [after leaving school] they said, We will give you this season to try and push on and make that dream a reality, but after that, you might have to look at other options.

With his first Premier League salary, Robertson bought his family a new house in Glasgow. Now he’s reaping the rewards of his labour.
