Liverpool defender Andy Robertson said it was a "no-brainer" to extend his deal with the club after signing a new five-year deal.

The Scotland captain took little time in agreeing a new long-term deal just 18 months after arriving for £8m from Hull.

"I hope to achieve success as a team over the course of this new deal," said the 24-year-old. "This club demands trophies and too long has probably passed without trophies.

"That is the main aim for us.

"As soon as the club came to me, it was a no-brainer for me - I want to stay here."
