Liverpool snapped up Robertson in 2017 from Hull following their relegation and from that time-on, the Scotsman has been able to establish himself as one of Premier League's stand-out full-backs under Klopp's guidance.

Robertson arrived Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp and a blend of youth and senior players had boarded for the pre-season.

But the 26-year-old has revealed life at Liverpool got off to an embarrassing start during Klopp's absence.

"The day I signed we got a tour of the stadium and stuff and that’s when it really hits home,’ Robertson told That Peter Crouch Podcast.

"I remember the first day there was only six or seven of us in because the lads were stil on pre-season.

"A couple of lads had come back from internationals and Danny Ings was coming back from a long-term injury.

"We had to do that lactate test, which the Germans love, where you have to run to your maximum. I remember running alongside Danny Ings and I was just sick everywhere.

"They set up poles all around the pitch and you have to make each pole on the whistle.

"It gets faster and faster and faster. It's similar [to the bleep test] but it’s a lot harder and faster.

"My medical took two days so I didn’t really eat so I put it down to that. I was tired.

"Ingsy was talking on the way round I knew something wasn’t right, I tried to hold it in but I had to let it go and it was terrible. Day one.

"Luckily the gaffer wasn’t there and I thought I got away with it. They were back three days later and he called me Mr Sickboy. I was gutted."
