    Donít know too much over here about the details of the situation, but wish him well.

    He was quick to help us Hibbies out here in the past, and although he was a nightmare for us on the field, I wish him all the best off it.

    Even he wasnít a good man, he would deserve support and a bit of kindness. But he is a good man and as long as I donít have to watch his highlights reel, I hope heís back soon. All the the best to him.
    Sums it up perfectly

    At no point in my life as a Hibee have I grudged Robertson his record against us. Good guy and I hope he gets back in the ICT dugout soon.

    Like many others remember his brave stance attending and speaking out at the Hands Off Hibs rally at the Usher Hall.
    Hope he makes a good recovery. Pressure ratchets up even more so during Covid for many. Players and managers are no different the additional strain must be awful. To have been unable to attend a funeral due to a game may have been his decision but maybe that decision should have been taken from him - looks like they were in desperate circumstances that must have been some burden to carry.
    Orrabest Robbo.

    In 1988 I was involved in a charity cricket match. Hearts and Hibs agreed to provide a player each, Tommy Mcintyre for us and Robbo for Hearts. In the meantime he had been transferred to Newcastle but he insisted in honouring his commitment.

    Standing pre-match in a group with him, he was reading the programme and came across a message of support from Mercer; he pretended to spit on his picture, much to Tommy Mís amusement

    After that I wasnít surprised he supported us during the takeover

    Best wishes to someone who has bridged the city divide, at least to a degree

    One of the good guys and I wish him all the best in his personal battle.

    Not surprised he did that to Mercers picture - in the early/mid 1980ís he was always very helpful to our Labour Party in Shandon. Nothing was too much trouble for him - turning up to anything asked / signing items to raise funds / donating to jumble sales etc. Good guy, get well soon Robbo.

    Legend...my favourite Hearts player.

    Caused me no end of grief when he played against us. Criminal he got less than 20 Scotland caps.

    Hope he recovers well.

    Still remember that wee nyaff running down the East stand touchline cupping his ear after scoring in 1997ish. At least Robertson used to celebrate with the Hearts fans after his inevitable last minute winner/equaliser. The difference in class is telling, as ITC are about to find out.

    Even if he hadn't supported the Hands off Hibs campaign, he come from a time before Hearts started all this 'wee team, big team' bloody nonsense, a time when you didn't get Hearts players and managers stoking up that crap, a time when you could respect an opposition player even if he did break your bloody heart one or two times a season, you could still grudgingly admit how good he was. That's what Robbo was back in the day.

    All the very best to him and his family, I hope he can get through this, I've been there myself and I know how bloody tough it is. Good luck Robbo.

    Spot on. I think I witnessed at least 20 of those 27 horrible goals - he could have goaded us, but had too much class and respect for Hibs fans to dance about in front of us, put his hand to his ear, grab his baws or whatever other trashy behaviour todays players do these days. Just celebrated with his own team and fans.

    If Hibs fans could have a favourite jambo mines would be Wee Robbie, although I hated him playing against us.

    All the best Robbo

    Robbie Neilson surely not

    Poor guy, hope him and the family get through it sooner rather than later.

    Also nice to see I am far from the only one that has always had plenty of time for Wee Robbo. Says a lot for his personality given the amount of hurt he caused us!!!

    All the best, to the man who destroyed us in so many games, wishing all the best to Robbo and his family.
    But for the price of a pair of fitba boots and Turnbulls foul mouth this Hibee could have played for the team he originally supported.
    Great guy for a jambo.
