Chris Robertson had been out of the Port Vale line-up until last weekend, with him revealing that it was ‘financial reasons’ that were keeping him out of the side.

Last season Robertson was a regular fixture in the Vale starting XI but his appearance in the one-nil win over Rochdale last weekend was only his second start of the season with him keen to point out that he was told financial reasons were behind this.

He told BBC Radio Stoke: ‘It was nothing to do with me being a bad egg, because I’m totally professional.

‘I was called by the chairman and he told me that it’s purely financial and it would be best if I go on loan.’

When Rob Page was confirmed as the new Vale boss the 28-year-old says that Page informed him that he ‘was part of his plans, as long as he is here’ but then a week later defenders were being signed on loan and Robertson was informed he wasn’t in his future plans!

Injury problems means that Robertson came back into the side, all he wants to do is play and as long as he’s doing that he’s available, adding: ‘I just want to defend. That’s what I’m paid to do. If he wants to use me again, I’m available at the moment.’

Among those interested, apparently, in taking Robertson on loan are Tranmere Rovers who are now of course managed by our former boss Micky Adams.

How much longer Robertson will remain remains to be seen, a rare cleansheet coincided with his return to the starting XI though!
