Breaking News ! Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has revealed the moment his former manager and current Newcastle boss Steve Bruce made him laugh "in the heat" of a match. The Scotland international was signed by Bruce at Hull City in July 2014, and the Premier League winner has thanked the 59-year-old for the "important role" he played in shaping his career. However, the Magpies boss proved to be less helpful last season when Robertson came up against his former boss. Writing in his upcoming autobiography Robbo: Now You're Gonna Believe Us, the left-back recalls the encounter which led him to offer an insincere apology.

This time, as manager of Newcastle, he wouldn’t be giving me any motivational speeches to spur me on. “But he did manage to give me a bit of laughter in the heat of the game. “I was taking a throw-in just in front of the dugouts when I heard his familiar Geordie tone. “‘Hey Robbo, any chance you could stop running?!’ I turned around and there he was, grinning from ear to ear.
. ‘Sorry gaffer,’ I said, before launching the ball up the line and racing forward to join the attack. “Some apologies are more genuine than others."

The 26-year-old is now regarded as one of the best left-backs in European football, and has lifted the Premier League and Champions League after signing for Liverpool in 2017. However, Robertson admits he may not have made the switch to English football without Bruce's reassurances about his ability. He wrote: “Hull came in for me when I was at Dundee United and, to be honest, English football scared me a bit at that time but Steve convinced me, telling me I was definitely good enough and that he would look after me. “I genuinely think that if he had not been so positive and encouraging, I would have stayed in Scotland. “Some managers have that ability to get you on board just through their own integrity and Steve definitely falls into that category. “I’m definitely indebted to him, just not enough to stop running because he tells me to!”
