As Andy Robertson spoke after leading Scotland to a famous 0-0 draw with England, he was left feeling a tinge of regret.

The stalemate leaves the Tartan Army capable of qualifying for the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time in their history.

Yet, despite a clean sheet and an impressive performance, the Liverpool defender believed Scotland could have left Wembley with all three points.

He had a point.

While John Stones hit the post for England, the Three Lions had Jordan Pickford and Reece James to thank for the scores staying level, the former producing a great save to deny Stephen O’Donnell in the first half and the latter heading off the line late on.

As a Premier League and Champions League winner, Robertson is the obvious leader in the Scotland camp and he is thriving with the responsibility of captaining his country in their first major finals since 1998.

Making sure to speak to and congratulate every team-mate after the final whistle, he led the Scots in applauding the travelling support before being serenaded while on media duties.

And it begs the question, could he take on such responsibilities at Liverpool?

Following Gini Wijnaldum’s departure to PSG, the Reds have an opening in the leadership group and Robertson could emerge as an under the radar contender.

As Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk and James Milner sat out games during the final weeks of the season through injury, it was the Dutchman who took on the armband in their absences.

The quartets’ role as leaders of the Liverpool squad is vital and while it remains to be seen if a player will be promoted to enjoy such a status after the group lost a member, it would be preferable to Klopp’s previous alternative.

In the past he has handed the armband to his longest-serving player when his leading quartet are absent, but there was movement away from such a stance last season with Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold both turned to when Wijnaldum was withdrawn or benched, with the duo both speaking publicly about their desire to take on the captaincy more regularly in future.

With Milner now 35 and out of contract next summer, Wijnaldum won’t be the only leader leaving Liverpool in the years ahead and such public declarations from Salah and Alexander-Arnold make them the obvious contenders to be promoted, but perhaps Robertson would be a more fitting candidate.

Boasting the most experience of captaining a side outside of the Reds’ leadership group, he is a popular member of the Liverpool squad and rarely misses a game, while at 27-years-old, he is entering his peak.

And as Liverpool debate whether to sign a new midfielder to replace Wijnaldum this summer, his replacement in the leadership group could be right under Klopp’s nose with Robertson’s displays for Scotland ensuring his name should be thrown into the hat.
