Robertson loved burst lip rumour among others of Liverpool dressing room fights

Andy Robertson joked he loved hearing he ended up with a burst lip after a dressing room fight with Alisson.

Liverpool’s left-back was among the players who were rumoured to have had a bust-up behind the scenes at Anfield recently.

Suggestions were made on social media earlier this month too that Jurgen Klopp was ready to quit as manager.

But the Reds boss quickly shot down those reports, although he has not been able to stop the rot.

Liverpool lost at home to Everton on Saturday for the first time since 1999 as Carlo Ancelotti’s men prevailed 2-0 winners at Anfield.

Robertson insists, though, any claims of in-house wars between players are nonsense.

"I don't look like the boxing type, do I!" the Scot told Sky Sports. "The least (likely) two people to fight in the dressing room are myself and Ali, to be honest.

"When you get a couple of bad results, in current times I think people are sitting at home a bit bored and obviously somebody made up a rumour that the gaffer didn't come home whereas me and Ali were fighting."

Robertson added: "I love how I was the one who ended up with the burst lip.

"I would rather it was the other way about but beggars can't be choosers!

"The stuff that was getting written was a lot of nonsense. For the players and everyone in the training ground, we just need to block all that out."
