What ‘apoplectic’ Andy Robertson said about linesman after he was ‘elbowed’ in throat during Liverpool vs Arsenal clash


ANDY ROBERTSON was reportedly left “apoplectic” and “stunned” after appearing to be elbowed by assistant referee Constantine Hatzidakis.

That is according to Sky Sports’ touchline reporter Geoff Shreeves, who was on the ground at Anfield for Sunday’s incredible 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Arsenal.

In astonishing scenes, Hatzidakis appeared to elbow Liverpool left-back Robertson after referee Paul Tierney blew for half-time.

Sky showed footage of the incident, before hearing Shreeves’ view.

He reported: “Andy Robertson was absolutely apoplectic, stunned even.

“He said ‘the linesman has just elbowed me in the throat’ – Jordan Henderson was well aware of it and led the remonstrations with referee Paul Tierney and after that they got taken away.

“Extraordinary scenes.”

Robertson was even booked by Tierney for his protests.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claimed after the game that he did not see what happened.

When asked for his thoughts on the incident involving Robertson and assistant referee Hatzidakis, Klopp told Sky: “Nothing. I know it happened but I didn’t watch it.
