Tam McManus has criticised Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson on Twitter for his performance for Scotland on Friday evening.

The former Hibernian forward, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, was not impressed with how Liverpool left-back Robertson played for Scotland against Russia in the European Championship Qualifying Group I at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

The 25-year-old left-back - who is valued at €90 million (£81.64m) by the CIES Football Observatory - did try his best to go on the attack and linked up well with Ryan Fraser, but he was under pressure at the back and was also at fault for Russia’s equaliser.

 

The former Dundee United and Hull City star is one of the best left-backs in the Premier League and plays consistently well for Liverpool, but he could not repeat his heroics for Scotland against Russia, as Steve Clarke's lost 2-1.

McManus has criticised his compatriot Robertson, and has noted that he has yet to see the left-back have a great game for Scotland, stating that he puts too much pressure on himself like Ryan Giggs did when he was playing for Scotland.
