    Robertson signs new Liverpool deal hands Reds fitness boost ahead of Chelsea clash

    Liverpool have confirmed that Andy Robertson has signed a new deal with the club

    A statement on the club website read: "Andy Robertson has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool FC.

    "The left-back finalised the deal at the AXA Training Centre on Tuesday and spoke of his delight at doing so."

    Speaking on his new deal, Robertson said: "Obviously when the negotiations started and it looked as if my future was going to be here longer term than what it was, then I think it’s no secret that I’m happy at this club.

    "I want to stay at this club for as long as possible and to extend my stay, it’s always a happy time for me, for my family. We’re settled here, we love everything about this football club and I’m glad that the journey is continuing."

    Robertson missed Liverpool’s opening game of the Premier League season against Norwich City due to an ankle ligament injury picked up against Athletic Bilbao at the start of the month.

    The Liverpool left-back was back in the Reds’ matchday squad as an unused substitute for last weekend’s 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield.

    And now fresh from signing a new deal with the club , the Scotland international has confirmed he is fit and available for the game against Chelsea this weekend.

    “I’m back in full training now. I fully trained on Friday, just one day before the game - maybe a bit ahead of schedule but I think the physios just wanted rid of me, to be honest!" He told Liverpoolfc.com .

    “Obviously I’ve been very lucky in my career that I’ve not had too many injuries and certainly not long-term injuries, and long may that continue. But yeah, I’m a nightmare when I’m injured and I want to get back out on the pitch as quickly as possible.

    "For me, as soon as I did it and I got the scan results I said, ‘I think Burnley is in my sights’ and there was a couple of people who said, ‘Yeah, you’ve got a chance’ so I managed to cling on to them and a couple of people said I had no chance so I avoided them until it was more realistic!

    "I tried my best, I tried everything. I was out running [and] I felt as if I could maybe have trained a day or two earlier but the experts we have at this club are excellent and I still needed to tick a couple of boxes, and luckily I did that on the Thursday. Then I fully trained with the team on the Friday.

    "Obviously the gaffer put me on the bench, which was probably unexpected but I was happy. When you’re at the game and everything is involved you just want [to be] on the pitch, but I think that was unrealistic yesterday [Saturday].

    "Now I’ve trained today and I’ll have a full week of training so let’s see what happens against Chelsea. But I’ll be ready, I’ll be ready to play, and like I said I’ll hopefully be fit for the rest of the season now."
