Andy Robertson has told Nat Phillips ‘good luck, big man’ on Instagram after the Liverpool centre-back secured a loan deal to Celtic until January.

Celtic have been smart enough to bring in a man of Nat Phillips’ experience, with the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers set to be out of action for a prolonged period of time.

This is a very good move from Celtic’s perspective because Phillips is a player who is much-loved by the Liverpool fans and someone with experience in the Premier League and the Champions League.

You would imagine, if he is fit and able to play, then he will be thrown straight into the deep end for the Rangers game on Sunday at Ibrox.

Either way, you would have imagined that, Andy Robertson, a boyhood Celt, would have shared a few messages of encouragement to Phillips prior to his move, with the player himself joking that the left-back is ‘a little bit jealous’.

Nonetheless, when Phillips reacted to his move to Celtic on Instagram, he received a number of messages in the comments section of his post.

‘Good luck, big man,’ responded Robertson with a green heart emoji, whilst Virgil van Dijk responded with a four-leaf clover and a fire emoji and Harvey Elliott added ‘Good luck, bro’.

A move that suits all parties

Given that Phillips is behind four players at Liverpool, then it’s highly unlikely he was going to earn regular game time on Merseyside.

Therefore, it’s a wise move from his perspective because it offers him the chance to win trophies and write his name into the legendary books of Scotland’s biggest club.

And for Celtic themselves, well, Rodgers will breathe a little easier going into the Glasgow derby because a ‘warrior’ of a defender has been added to his backline.
