ANDY ROBERTSON is poised to sign a new five-year deal with Liverpool and DOUBLE his wages.

The Scotland international skipper still has three years to run on his current contract.

However, Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp wants to reward the left-back who cost £8million when he signed from Hull City at the beginning of last season.

And that means the 24-year-old, who has become a key member of the first team after taking over the No.3 slot from Fernando Moreno, will see his his pay packet soar to £60,000-per-week in an astonishing move that will total £15million.

It’s a remarkable transformation in fortunes for Robertson who was released by boyhood idols Celtic for being “too small” in 2009 before joining Queen’s Park the same year.

The Glaswegian moved to Dundee United four years later before a £2.85million switch to Hull City at the end of the season.

Alex McLeish installed him as the nation’s captain to succeed the retiring Scott Brown in September.

He is due to lead the Scots in the Nations League ties against Albania on Saturday and Israel a week tomorrow.
