Biography

The impressive Scottish midfielder agreed terms on a season-long loan from Celtic in August 2021.

Robertson, had joined the Hoops at the start of 2020 and helped drive the team to a second-place finish in the 2020/21 Scottish Women’s Premier League season, along with qualification for the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

During this campaign, she was named the SWPL Player of the Month for November, topping both the public and head coach votes to land an individual award befitting of her influence on the Celtic team. Subsequently, she was deservedly awarded the league's Player of the Year title.

On the books of Hibernian as a youngster, Robertson broke into the Hibees First Team at the beginning of the last decade and won her first Scottish Women’s Cup as an 18-year-old in 2010. 12 months later she added to her growing reputation by winning the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup

Her fine performances in the Scottish capital then earned her a move stateside, where she spent a season representing Spokane Shine before returning to her homeland and joining Glasgow City.

In one year at City, she picked up three winners medals as she was part of a side that completed a domestic treble ahead of returning to Hibs for a second spell.

Back in Edinburgh, Robertson won two further Scottish Cups and three more Premier League Cups across an extremely successful four-year stint, leading to a move south of the border in late 2018.

Joining Durham of the FA Women’s Championship, the midfield presence made her mark in England’s second tier and memorably scored both of the Wildcats’ goals – the second from the halfway line - as they beat Bristol City to reach the quarter-finals of the Women’s FA Cup.

The aforementioned move to Celtic followed and led to senior international recognition. Robertson made her debut for Scotland in a 0-10 victory over Cyprus and picked up cap number two, along with a first start, in a narrow success away to Northern Ireland. This saw her operate in midfield alongside Blues’ Christie Murray, with the former youth international teammates now reunited in the West Midlands.
