Raging Peter Grant told Andy Robertson he should have kept talking about the dream of moving to Celtic because he questioned the Liverpool star’s focus.
The Scotland captain has never hidden his love for the club he set free at aged 15 before becoming one of the world’s best left-backs, but he went one step further insisting he wanted to return to Celtic Park before. His career is over. The 28-year-old admitted he does not know when he will be ready to move away from Anfield after lifting the Champions League and Premier League on Merseyside.Read:The Premier League’s refereeing body admit they got two major VAR calls WRONG
However, he insists every time he watches Ange Postecoglou’s side “consider” a move to the Scottish Premier League champions. But Barkhead’s champion Grant hasn’t been talking about a linebacker move at this point in his career – and insists he shouldn’t get ahead of himself too much.
When asked about Robertson’s revealing interview, Grant told the Go Radio Football Show: “A lot of people have had that dream. I’ve spoken when Steven Gerrard kept talking about being the manager of Liverpool while he was the manager at Rangers, I don’t. Like this.”
“Your club has to be your focus. Football has a funny way of kicking you. I think you just have to focus on what you’re doing now and get back to playing well with Liverpool, be successful there.Read:The young wolves are starting to make a big impression
“At the end of the day, if he ends up playing for Celtic, that’s great. Me, as a Liverpool fan, you’re not talking about a 35-year-old being finished, he’s 28. Your level of focus should be at your club.
“We can all dream. But there are certain things you have to keep to yourself.
“It’s different if you’re late in your career and you come to an end, and I hope Andy isn’t. It bothered me with Steven Gerrard when he was at a big club like Rangers, and it bothered me if I was a Liverpool and Celtic supporter.
“I don’t like it. Focus on the job in front of you. Football is very important day in and day out and you have to be alone in thinking.”
