With a patriotic pre-tournament present, Andy Robertson makes a good first impression.
Andy Robertson has been praised by his international teammates after presenting them with a Scottish-themed gift bag when they arrived at their Euro 2020 camp.
The Liverpool defender organized the gift on his own to assist his teammates in settling into their camp at Rockliffe Hall, near Darlington, which is close to Middlesbrough’s training grounds.
Scottish food and beverages, as well as electrical devices and video games, were among the gifts.
Kevin Nisbet, a striker, said the gesture had brought the team closer together.
“When we got here, Robbo gave us all a gift of a box with a lot of items in it, and it made me realize we were at the Euros, and it was starting now,” Nisbet said ahead of Scotland’s Hampden opener against the Czech Republic on Monday.
“There were apple watches and earphones,” says the narrator. There was a shirt, shortbread, Irn-Bru, and a lot other Scottish-themed items.
“Robbo deserves credit for that. He’s a fantastic captain and leader, and he’s the finest person to lead us ahead.
“Visiting facilities like this and receiving gifts from the skipper makes you realize you’re in a significant event, and we’re all quite excited.
“I thought that was a thoughtful gesture on his part. It draws the team even closer together. He’s a fantastic guy and a fantastic captain, and he’ll be the one to lead us ahead.
“Everyone was incredibly grateful. He has certainly gone out of his way to accomplish this. When you have a skipper who can do it, you back them 100 percent.”
