Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has been pictured leaving the hospital wearing a protective boot and on a single crutch after suffering an ankle injury yesterday.

Robertson had to be helped off the pitch in the final minutes of the first-half of a friendly against Athletic Bilbao, the Scotsman landed awkwardly on his right ankle after blocking a cross.

The 27-year-old is one of the most important players in Jurgen Klopp’s side and missing the ace for the start of the new season following a nervy campaign will no doubt be a heavy blow.
