Scotland captain Andy Robertson feels that his Liverpool FC teammate Naby Keita is hitting form at the right time.

The Guinean midfield maestro has netted in each of his last two competitive games for the English giants.

The Reds have a busy December schedule as they will be competing in the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup.

“Our squad is full of quality and unfortunately for Naby this season,” Robertson told the Liverpool Echo.

“He has picked up an injury which has kept him out a wee bit and he came back and the midfield has done so well.

“But he has had an opportunity in the last two games and he has been excellent. He has added to our options and that is what we need to create,” he continued.

“Naby replicates what this team is about. He was the man of the match on Saturday and again tonight he was excellent. Long may that continue.”

Robertson, who is a left-back, also believes that the Liverpool squad is embracing the responsibility of sharing the goalscoring burden around this term.

“I have chipped in this season (against Aston Villa) after not last season and I would take that but it is good to spread it about,” he added.

“We also have Naby popping up. We cannot rely on the front three all the time. It is up to us to get goals as well and Naby has done that.”
