Robertson was part of the celebrations and appeared to be enjoying himself with a beer on the bus as the Liverpool players thanked fans for their support.

However, a number of Scotland fans were left disappointed with their captain and felt that he should have been focusing on Wednesday's all-important clash against Ukraine.
