Rangers cult hero Marvin Andrews has admitted that it’s “always a pleasure” to run out at Ibrox as he gears up for the Legends clash with Liverpool that will see Steven Gerrard turn out for the Reds once more.

The two sides meet at Ibrox on October 12th with a litany of stars from the recent – and not-so-recent – past pull their boots on infront of what is likely to be a sizeable crowd.

Big Marv admits he’s hoping for a sell-out at Ibrox when the sides meet and expects to face a good Liverpool side, despite their advancing years.

“It’s always a pleasure to run back out at Ibrox as a player,” Andrews told Rangers TV.

“I have been retired for so many years now, but hopefully this game is a sell-out or a good number of fans there to support the match.


“Liverpool is a big club, and their ex-players play a lot of games together, going to a lot of different places for these matches.


“Their squad should be good and they’ll have some top players who have played the game at the highest level, though they’ll, of course, be a little bit older now!”

Andrews remains a massive favourite with the Gers support and is often involved in charity games involving various Ibrox heroes.

With the likes of Fernando Torres, Gerrard, Jason McAteer and Patrik Berger lining up for Liverpool, Andrews and his Rangers team-mates could be in for a busy afternoon.

Despite being retired for a while now, Andrews will definitely get a fantastic welcome from the Gers fans when he makes his Ibrox return.
