Andy Robertson thinks Mohamed Salah’s wonder-goal against Chelsea was the best way to silence the racists who abused him last week.

A video went viral during the week that showed six Chelsea fans signing racist chants about the prolific Liverpool forward.

However, Robertson has revealed that Salah “dealt” with the abuse and responded in the best possible way – on the pitch.

“There was a bit of stuff that had gone on in the week and that’s the way to shut them up,” said Robertson.

“The club released a statement on the day and Mo was fine about it. It’s not nice but he dealt with it. It didn’t affect him at all – it didn’t look like it, did it?

“Sadly people are getting used to things like this now because it is happening far too often. Raheem Sterling said the other day that the only way to shut people like this up is to score goals and to beat them (their team). I know it is only a minority of Chelsea fans but Mo certainly quietened them down.

“It was a fantastic goal. He cut inside and clearly fancied his chances. As soon as he hit it, everyone knew that it was in. The place went wild and fair play to him.

“He has come under a bit of criticism (for his performances) this season, unfairly in my opinion. But that will silence them too and hopefully that will give him a lot of confidence going into the final games.”
