Robertson, who played twice against Messi during the 2018/19 Champions League season, is keen to avoid facing the Argentinian again.

According to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard reporter Andrew Maclean, Robertson said: “I think Liverpool have ruled out that we could sign him so I don’t want him anywhere near the Premier League and hopefully it stays that way.

“I’ve played against him twice and it’s the hardest games I’ve ever played.”
