Robertson has further stated that Henderson has not had a bad game for Liverpool so far this season.
Robertson told Sky Sports about Henderson: ”For me, I think he's the leading candidate [for player of the year]. At times this season when we've struggled Hendo has been the one that has driven us forward.
"He's the one who has made sure we don't get slack, or he has chipped in with some really important goals or really important assists.
"Maybe his performances at the start of the season went a little bit under the radar, but as the season has progressed he's not really had a bad game.
"You really appreciate him when you train with him every day and in this country he's not been appreciated enough in his character.
"He's getting the recognition he deserves because he is a fantastic player, a fantastic role model and a fantastic captain. He's driven us to three points at times this season when we've struggled.”
According to WhoScored, Henderson has made 21 starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool so far this season, scoring three goals and providing four assists in the process.

Henderson also made eight starts and three substitute appearances in the Champions League for Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
