Two Scottish sporting superstars will go head-to-head at a prestigious sports awards ceremony.
Andy Murray and Andy Robertson’s team Liverpool have been shortlisted in the Comeback of the Year category at the Laureus World Sports.
Scotland captain Robertson helped Liverpool recover from a three-goal first-leg deficit to beat Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final.
Murray, meanwhile, seemed set for retirement but returned to the tour and won a title after undergoing a career-saving hip operation.
The awards ceremony will take place in Berlin in February.
Laureus Academy member Boris Becker hailed the nomination of Murray, who will miss this month’s Australian Open with a pelvic injury.
He said: “I never really expected to be making these comments about Andy, but it’s great that I can.
“He seemed to be on the point of retiring but over the years his fighting spirit has always been one of his strongest assets and that was evident in 2019.”
