LIVERPOOL defender Andy Robertson insists the motivation to win will burn just as bright next season as the players have a responsibility to bring trophies to the club.

Jurgen Klopp and his players were presented with a long-awaited first league title in 30 years last night after their final home match with Chelsea.

Despite them running away with it this year -having wrapped things up with seven matches remaining, Robertson said it will not dull their ambition and drive.

"We don't want it to be a one or two-times-off, we want that to become the normal," the Scotland international told Premier League Productions.

"We want that winning feeling every single year and that's why after winning the Champions League (last summer) we stayed so motivated to go and win the Premier League.

"Our motivation will be there again to go and win all the trophies put in front of us next season.

"Teams are getting better, everyone's making signings and trying to close the gap and I believe they will, (so) whether we're good enough we'll wait and see, but our motivation will be there.

"Our motivation to win trophies for this club is always there. You carry a responsibility when you put on this shirt and we all know that, we all buy into it.

"With the manager we've got, he doesn't let us drop below 100 per cent. That will continue, so as soon as we do get to that point he'd be there to tell us otherwise and so would the captain.

"We've got really good characters in our squad that won't let our standards slip - not that we ever would think about it.

"We've got a responsibility to try to bring trophies to this club. We've done well so far but it's about continuing that."
