Andy Robertson Biography, EarlyLife
Robertson was born in Glasgow and was a childhood Celtic fan. His father Brian, nicknamed ‘Pop’, who grew up in the Maryhill area (specifically the Wyndford estate where he was a childhood friend of footballers Jim Duffy and Charlie Nicholas), was a keen amateur player, although a spinal injury requiring him to wear a back brace prevented him from pursuing the sport as a career.
Andy Robertson Education
He attended St Ninian’s High School in Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, from 2006 to 2012, where he captained the football team. A talented golfer, he was also the junior captain of his local golf club in Glasgow. He also played for Giffnock Soccer Centre, and joined Celtic as a youth, but was released at under-15 level because he was considered to be too small. He then signed for Queen’s Park.
Andy Robertson’s Height, And Weight
Andy Robertson has an athletic body standing at the perfect height of 5 feet 10 inches and weighs around 64 kg.
Robertson was first selected by the Scotland under-21 team in October 2013. He made his debut as a substitute in a 2–1 win against Slovakia. Robertson was selected for the under-21 team in November 2015, as the full national team did not have a fixture. Robertson was first named in the full Scotland squad for a friendly against Poland on 5 March 2014.
He came on as a substitute in the second half, as Scotland won 1–0 in Warsaw. Scotland manager Gordon Strachan said afterward “Andy came on there and the first time he picked it up he drove about 30 yards. I thought ‘That’s fantastic’. Absolutely no grey area, I’m going to do what I do. I loved seeing that first touch.” Robertson made his first start for the national team in a 2–2 draw with Nigeria on 28 May 2014. Robertson scored his first international goal in a friendly against England at Celtic Park in November 2014, scoring Scotland’s only goal as they were beaten 3–1.
On 3 September 2018, Robertson was appointed as Scotland captain by manager Alex McLeish. After a 2–1 defeat against Israel in October 2018, Robertson said that both he and fellow left-back Kieran Tierney were being played out of position in the 3–5–2 system adopted by McLeish to accommodate both players. In a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier against Cyprus on 8 June 2019, Robertson scored the opening goal of the game with a long-range strike. Scotland eventually won 2–1.
In November, he was one of five Scotland players to withdraw from the national squad due to injury. In November 2020, with Robertson again as captain, Scotland qualified for UEFA Euro 2020 following a 5–4 win on penalties against Serbia. It was Scotland’s first major tournament appearance since 1998, ending a 22-year streak of not qualifying. On 14 June 2021, Robertson captained Scotland in their first game of Euro 2020 but ended up on the losing side as the Scots lost 2–0 to the Czech Republic. Scotland were knocked out at the group stage, having lost to the Czechs and Croatia either side of a goalless draw with England.
In September of that year, Robertson won his 50th cap and thereby joined the Scottish FA International Roll of Honour. In his next appearance he led the team to a 1–0 away win over Austria; among his teammates was debutant substitute Paul McGinn who last played alongside Robertson almost nine years earlier, when they were with Queen’s Park in the fourth tier of Scottish football (he had been reunited at international level with another Queen’s Park colleague, Lawrence Shankland, in 2019).
In a UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying game against Norway in Oslo, two late goals from Lyndon Dykes and Kenny McLean overturned a one-goal deficit and caused Scotland to go top of their group on a maximum of nine points. Robertson was named man of the match, being described by Thomas Duncan of BBC Sport as being “[c]omposed at the back and brilliant at driving the team forward up the left”.
