Andrew Robertson has praised Mohamed Salah for silencing both critics and racists with his stunning strike in Liverpool’s 2-0 victory against Chelsea.
Salah netted a ‘Worldie’ just 142 seconds after Sadio Mane headed the Reds into the lead to ensure Klopp’s side will remain top of the Premier League table.
Before the encounter, Chelsea fans in Prague were seen in a video singing ‘Salah is a bomber’, apparently in reference to the Egyptian forward.

But Liverpool teammate Andy Robertson hailed the Egyptian forward for the way he responded on the pitch.
“That’s the way to shut them up,” said Liverpool left-back Robertson via Sky. “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.
“It was a fantastic goal. He cut inside and as soon as he hit it, everyone knew it was in.”
