"Andy Robertson. He's funny, Scottish, bubbly, always in for a joke - yeah he's the funny one.

“Since the before I joined, the first half of the season, when I wasn't at Liverpool he [Robertson] didn't play much, he started to play and that relationship got stronger and stronger.”

No surprises there, as the flying full back often plays with a smile on his face and is in the middle of the team's many trophy celebrations over the past few seasons.

Next up, Neville asked van Dijk where his favourite stadium to play away in was and given that the centre back has played in numerous Champions League finals, the Premier League, and captains his country, you can only imagine the choices he would have.

However, it was actually at his time with Celtic, when the Scottish champions took Barcelona in Europe did van Dijk really experience the power of the oppositions stadium.

"That a difficult one as well, but I would say Camp Nou, Barcelona. Obviously for myself, watching a lot of Barcelona games when I was younger and then being able to play in it with Celtic the first time and getting beat 6-1 was tough.

"But to be able to play there was a big one, I really enjoyed it. It is incredible, it's insane."
