Andy Robertson has deleted his Twitter account, following a difficult few weeks in his career.

The 25-year-old received criticism from Scotland fans after his performances as captain during the international break.

Then, on Tuesday, Robertson gave away a late penalty as Liverpool lost 2-0 to Napoli in the Champions League, albeit one that looked incredibly soft.

It appears as though the abuse heading the Scot’s way has led to him getting rid of Twitter, which has saddened many fans on the social media platform.

It’s disgusting that a footballer should receive such abuse – it’s even worse when the player in question is one of the most humble, likeable individuals to have played for Liverpool.

Robertson is an emotional figure and it’s clear that the criticism heading his way has affected him.

There’s every chance that it’s the behaviour of the Scotland supporters that has made him delete his account, rather than Liverpool fans tearing into him for essentially not fouling a player in the lead-up to a penalty.

Either way, those who are responsible for such awful behaviour should hang their hands in shame.

Is Robertson the best left-back in the world?
