Inside Robertson’s Scotland giftbox he presented to teammates

Scotland captain Andrew Robertson showed his generosity by giving each of his Euro 2020 teammates a special giftbox before the tournament gets underway.

The Liverpool defender was appointed Scotland captain back in September 2018 by then-manager Alex McLeish, and will lead the side into their first major competition for 22 years.

Robertson tweeted his thanks to the brands that made the giftboxes possible – with the attached photo containing several Scottish-themed items.

Now, striker Kevin Nisbet has revealed some of what was inside the giftbox, ahead of Scotland’s first group game against Czech Republic on June 14.

He said (quotes via Daily Record): “We came here [on Wednesday] and the skipper Robbo bought us gifts.

“We got a box and there was a lot of stuff in it. It makes you realise you’re here, you’re at the Euros and it’s started now.

“There was Apple Watches, earphones, a lot of stuff. It’s credit to Robbo, he’s done it off his own back.

“He’s a great captain, a great leader and the best person to take us forward.

“He has obviously gone out his own way to do that. When you have got a skipper that does that then 100% you back them.”

Robertson was captain on the night that Scotland famously beat Serbia on penalties in order to qualify for Euro 2020.

The tournament will be the first time they have played in the European Championships since Euro 96.

The main similarity between the two tournaments, of course, is that they will face England in the second match of the group stages.

That game takes place on June 18 at Wembley, four days after Steve Clarke’s side take on Czech Republic at Hampden Park to kick off their tournament.

They then complete their group campaign against Croatia, which will also take place at Hampden Park.
