At least the international break brought one positive for the blue side of Glasgow, as 30,000 fans got to see Rangers Legends play Liverpool legends. Liverpool may have come out 3-2 winners, but they witnessed manager Steven Gerrard play for both sides.
On 81 minutes, Gerrard came on as a substitute wearing the deep blue of the Gers to a roar from the home crowd who’d sarcastically booed him in the first half when he played for his old club. The 39-year-old showed he can still drive forward through the midfield and picked up his on-pitch relationship with Luis Garcia, who managed to bag a goal.
Kris Boyd and Peter Lovenkrands got the goals for Rangers, but Gerrard’s appearance from the bench was the main talking point of the day. The club’s official Twitter account posted a video of him coming on and fans took to the replies to say how satisfying it was to see such a great of the British game pull on their kit.

What a great game! Some of the players could still get a game for the team now, Alexander, Papac, Buffel, Rae could all do a job. 👍🏼 wont forget the gaffer coming on in a blue top (even though it did look weird him playing in blue rather than red.) 🤣👍🏼🤞🏻😎 #RangersFC #watp pic.twitter.com/5ZpjgARbET
