Dalglish cannot understand why his compatriot would want to play anywhere else
The Spanish giants are seeking a long-term replacement for Jordi Alba and Robertson’s pace, delivery and defensive ability make him a perfect candidate.
However Dalglish, who won three European Cups and managed Liverpool in two spells, cannot understand why his compatriot would want to play anywhere else.
‘Robertson must wake up every morning and think it’s Christmas Day,’ Dalglish wrote in The Sunday Post.
‘That’s why I don’t believe he’ll be considering leaving Liverpool for any other football club at home or abroad.
‘I’m told he has been linked with a couple of big European clubs. But why would he want to leave Liverpool? Seriously, tell me why?

‘Anyway, he is already playing abroad! Well, that was always the way I looked at it when I moved from Scotland to England to join Liverpool from Celtic.’
He added: ‘Andy has every right to be proud of what he has helped Liverpool achieve in the past 10 months.
‘Week in and week out, he has been hugely influential and his contribution has been enormous. What the team gets out of him in every game is remarkable.’
Scotland captain Robertson enjoyed a fine season, which saw him provide 13 assists in 48 games across all competitions. He was on target for his country on Saturday night as Scotland beat Cyprus 2-1 at Hampden.
