Andy Robertson admits he would "love" the chance to play for Scottish giants Celtic one day.

Glasgow-born Robertson has been a star at Liverpool since arriving from Hull City in a £10million deal almost three years ago.

The 26-year-old has made 116 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's men and has made the left-back position his own at Anfield.

The former Hull City defender has plenty of time with the Reds ahead of him, but he accepts his dream of retiring at the club could be difficult.

"My ideal situation is to retire at Liverpool. It's going to be quite hard but I'd love to be able to finish my career here, if I can keep my standards as high as that up to a James Milner type of age then I would be quite happy with that," he told BT Sport.

"I've always said that I would love to pull on the Celtic shirt. I've played for Dundee United, which I loved. You never say never, you’re a long time retired and I want to play for as long as I can. Whether that's finishing up in Scotland or at one point going up to Scotland, then I'd be open to it."

Robertson also reiterated the club's desire to complete the 2019/20 Premier League season, with the top-flight currently suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League was suspended on 13 March and there has been no decision yet, to when, or if the league will complete.

"We want to finish the league, I think everyone does. That's the fair way, as long as it's safe and everything is safe about it, then nobody wants to be promoted or relegated or champions by not completing a season," he added.

"The Champions League is the biggest one of all, for me, they're the top teams around the world but when you play with Liverpool, you understand the fans are desperate for the Premier League.

"That's where we're in a unique position. They've never won the Premier League, it's been 30 years since the last league title, it's a really long wait and we want to end that."
