Andy Robertson can return to Liverpool early during the international break.

The Scotland skipper has helped Steve Clarke’s side to back-to-back wins and within one game of European Championship qualification as they beat Israel on penalties before squeezing past Slovakia.

Although there is one more game of the current break, which comes against Czech Republic in the Nations League on Wednesday, Robertson could choose to return to England as a result of his suspension.

QPR forward Lyndon Dykes scored the only goal of the game at Hampden Park, but it was Robertson’s late decision-making that was questioned by social media users.

One fan said: “Get a daft yellow card which rules you out of the next international game. Well done Andy Robertson. A blind man could see what you were doing.”

With another adding: “Andy Robertson getting a pointless yellow card there for Scotland on purpose so it means he won’t play 3 games in a week for them and now misses the game vs Czech Republic.”

The 26-year-old was in high spirits after the match, offering his congratulations to Motherwell’s Declan Gallagher as well as Manchester United’s Scott McTominay and Andrew Considine of Aberdeen.

Clarke said after the win: "It was a good performance from start to finish. The system worked well.

“It was a good solid defensive performance and we looked a threat going forward.

"[Scott] McTominay, who supposedly couldn't play right-sided centre back, was excellent again, Declan Gallagher was excellent and Andrew Considine didn't let himself down tonight. He was really good."

Scotland will take on Serbia in November to see who will join England, Croatia and the Czech Republic in Group D at Euro 2020 which is due to take place between June and July next summer.

Clarke said of that match-up: "The group of players who are here now have the chance to make themselves almost undroppable. That is the first point on that one.

"Looking ahead to next month, all the players who are not in the squad this time have to do everything they can in their power to make sure they are fit and playing as well as they can to make my selection process as hard as possible.”
