Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has offered some big praise to players from two of his old club’s biggest rivals – Liverpool and Arsenal.
The ex- Manchester united boss is very excited about the prospect of Scotland at the European Championships this summer, and picked out Liverpool and Arsenal left-backs Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney as two stand-out talents in the team.
“They have been playing quite well. I think it’s the old story, the scoring of goals,” Ferguson told the Glasgow Euro 2020 team when asked about this Scotland team.
“Their performance level has been very good, I have been impressed. I look at the midfield players and I think they are as good as any of the players playing in England.
“And [Kieran] Tierney has been fantastic at Arsenal, absolutely fantastic, Robertson the last two years at Liverpool has been unbelievable.”
Robertson has undoubtedly been one of the finest full-backs in Europe for a number of years now, having had a meaningful impact in his time at Anfield.
The 27-year-old was not the biggest name when he first joined but he has ended up being one of their most important players, winning both the Champions League and Premier League title in the last two seasons.
Tierney has also shown plenty of promise at Arsenal, displaying and being impactful in matches despite their ongoing struggles under Mikel Arteta.
There’s no doubt these two could be ones to watch for Scotland at the Euros this summer.
