Club pays tribute to former Red Michael Robinson

Liverpool Football Club today bids farewell to one its much-loved heroes of the past, Michael Robinson.

Robinson joined Liverpool in 1983 after playing for Preston North End, Manchester City and Brighton. He was signed by Joe Fagan as a backup to the first-choice attacking partnership of Ian Rush and Kenny Dalglish.

Robinson was a Liverpool player for little over a year, yet, he managed to play 42 times for the club, scoring 12 goals in all competitions.

Before moving onto Queens Park Rangers in late 1984, Robinson had won a League Championship, League Cup and European Cup with Liverpool in that 1983/84 season.

After his playing career ended in Spain with Osasuna, Robinson ended up staying on and integrating himself into the world of Spanish football media. He became a regular fixture on television in Spain, as a co-commentator and studio pundit. Hence, why there has been such an outpouring of respect and emotion today from some of Liverpool’s former Spanish stars – they would have grown up watching Robinson on TV in their home country.

Michael also played 24 full internationals for Ireland, scoring 4 goals, between 1980 and 1986.
