Robertson insists Liverpool ‘have come a long way’ despite final day disappointment

Andy Robertson insists Liverpool ‘have come a long way’ despite being pipped to the Premier League title by Manchester City.

City’s 4-1 final day win at Brighton saw them crowned back-to-back champions, with Liverpool finishing just a point behind with a record 97 points after their 2-0 win over Wolves.

Having improved drastically from last season’s fourth-placed finish and reached a second Champions League final in a row, Robertson insists Jurgen Klopp’s side ‘have a come a long way’ this campaign.

“It’s one of them, 97 points – if anyone offered us that at the start of the season I think everyone would’ve took it,” Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We’ve come up against an incredible team and for us to get that close, it just shows you how far we’ve come. We’ve come a long way since last season and closed the gap to City.

“The good thing is that City know we’re here now and we’re not going anywhere. This squad will stay together and we need to put everything into next season.

“We’ve not done much wrong, but we’ll learn from it. We’ve still got a massive game coming up and then we can focus on next season.

“We’ve come up against an incredible team, but this team isn’t bad as well.”
