Steve Bruce praises Andrew Robertson ahead of Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur

Steve Bruce is full of praise for Andrew Robertson as Hull City prepare to take on Tottenham Hotspur at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has been singing the praises of Andrew Robertson.

The 20-year-old defender joined the Tigers from Scottish club Dundee United in the summer transfer window for a reported transfer fee of £2.85 million.

Robertson has been in impressive form for Hull so far this season and has been among the goals for Scotland.

The young left-back was on target for his nation against England in a friendly international at Celtic Park in Glasgow in midweek.

Bruce is impressed with Robertson and has only good words for him ahead of the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at the KC Stadium on Sunday.

“He’s had a wonderful couple of years,” Hull’s official website quotes Bruce as saying. “He’s gone from playing in the lower divisions of Scottish football to scoring a goal against England.

“I thought he was the exceptional player on the pitch against the Republic of Ireland last Friday and he is a wonderfully gifted young lad who has got the world at his feet…

“He’s got a wonderful future ahead of him and is a truly fantastic young talent who will only get better, as long as he keeps working at it – it’s our job to make sure he does that.”

Tottenham have been warned.
