Dutch legend Dirk Kuyt believes former club Feyenoord will be looking for “revenge” when they face Rangers tomorrow night in the Europa League after losing at Ibrox earlier in the group stages.
The Gers can seal their place in the last 32 with a win at De Kuip and Kuyt predicts a “very exciting game” as both look to extend their European campaign.
The former team-mate of Steven Gerrard at Liverpool also admits he was “amazed” by the fans at Ibrox when the sides met, as well as the Gers hosted a Liverpool legends team recently.
“There might be a bit of revenge,” Kuyt said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“I saw the game and, to be honest, Rangers deserved to win that game. In Rotterdam, it will be a different game.
“We were talking about the group stage and it is an interesting one. It will be a very exciting game. We will see what happens but it is going to be exciting.
“I was amazed by the fans at Ibrox a few weeks ago and they also amazed me during the Legends match. It is unbelievable to have more than 30,000 and they put a lot into it. It was amazing.”
Despite only lifting the League Cup during his time at Anfield, Kuyt was a massive favourite with the Liverpool support.
The Dutchman made 286 appearances for the Reds before hanging his boots up following spells with Fenerbahce and Feyenoord.
While there might be talk of getting revenge after losing at Ibrox, hopefully, Gerrard’s side have enough about them to see off the Dutch and secure their place in the next round.
