Liverpool: Fans react to seeing Steven Gerrard back in a red shirt

A team of Liverpool legends managed to beat counterparts from Rangers 3-2 in a charity match at Ibrox on Sunday.

Goals from Luis Garcia, Emile Heskey and Patrik Berger won the game for the English side, in a game which was played in front of over 30,000 spectators and where proceeds went towards the Rangers Charity Foundation and LFC Foundation.

The match featured some of the biggest names from both club’s recent histories. The likes of Jamie Carragher, Jerzy Dudek and Dirk Kuyt featured for the Reds, whilst Kris Boyd, Lee McCulloch and Peter Lovenkrands were in the Rangers team.

There was one player who played a part for both teams though, the ex-Liverpool legend turned Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.

The 39-year-old started the game for the Merseyside club, before switching from a red shirt to a blue one for the last 10 minutes of the match.

Gerrard was jokingly booed by sections of the Ibrox crowd whilst in his Liverpool jersey, but fans of the Premier League leaders were absolutely thrilled to see one of their greatest ever players back in the famous red shirt.

Liverpool’s official Twitter account posted a video of Gerrard wearing the club colours at Ibrox on Sunday, with several supporters showing their love for the ex-England international. Plenty of them were excited to see their former captain in their colours once again, with some even suggesting he could still get a game at Anfield…
