Liverpool might have missed out on their first Premier League title after coming up one-point short of Manchester City, but Robertson insists getting to Madrid has helped fans overcome the disappointment.

European club football’s showcase event will take place at the Wanda Metropolitano at 8pm tonight and it will mark Liverpool’s second consecutive Champions League final.

Last season they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev but Liverpool have proven any doubters wrong about the calibre of players they have in their in squad as they beat many of the best clubs in Europe on their way to the final to face Tottenham.

“Now we want to end the season on a high,” Robertson said in an interview with the Telegraph.

Robertson recalled the emotional scenes that took place following their mesmerising performance at Anfield in the second leg of their semi-final clash against Barcelona, when they overturned a three goal deficit to win 4-3 on aggregate.

The 26-year-old revealed that while some players were crying after the game, he was more concerned about the injury he sustained during the game.

“There were a few tears after the Barcelona game because of what it meant. Not me, though. I don’t get emotional,” Robertson said.

“It was a whirlwind game and obviously I had to come off at half-time so my mind was all over the place because of the injury.

“There is no doubt getting to Madrid helped the fans get over the massive disappointment of missing out on the Premier League.

“The fans appreciated our efforts regardless and it was easier to send us off with a few ‘see you in Madrid’ songs.

“We could not do any more.

“Unfortunately, we came up against one of the best teams that has ever played in the Premier League.“

Robertson, who signed for Liverpool from Hull City in a £10million deal in the summer of 2017, believes the club need to repay the fans by beating Spurs.

“The fans since I’ve got here have been different class and I’m sure they’ve been like that for years and years because they’re well renowned to be the best.

“We need to try to repay them.

“We know how happy that will make them if we can take that final step and go and lift the trophy – it’s what they deserve.”
