Former Steven Gerrard teammate fires Rangers Brøndby fan warning

Former Liverpool star Daniel Agger has warned Rangers and former teammate Steven Gerrard to expect “one of the best atmospheres in the world” when the Ibrox club play Danish Champions Brøndby.

The Ibrox side are travelling to the suburbs of Copenhagen to play the Denmark club in a hotly anticipated clash at the 29k Brøndby Stadium.

Speaking ahead of the match, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard revealed he spoke to his former teammate about the Danes and Agger has backed his first club to produce a top atmosphere.

“We have to realise this is going to be a different environment,” said Gerrard [Rangers].


“It will be a full house. I spoke to Daniel Agger about the Brondby support, how lively they are going to be and how much they are going to be up for the game.

“So it is going to be a real tricky tie from that point of view.

“The coach is in a must-win situation so we expect the best version of Brondby, the most aggressive version of Brondby, and with their support in a full house and if Daniel Agger is telling me the truth and it is one of the best atmospheres in the world, we have to ready for a real fascinating challenge.”

Agger – now 36 – had two spells with the Danish club and came through the youth ranks at Brøndby before making his £6m transfer to Anfield in 2006 after an impressive two years in the first team.

The 75-times capped Denmark international would then spend eight years at Anfield where he played extensively alongside then Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

Making over 230 appearances for Liverpool, Agger would then return to Brøndby where he played a further two seasons before announcing his retirement from playing at only 31.

After a spell out of the limelight of the game, Agger has moved into management with Danish 1st division club HB Køge whom he joined in June of this year.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard also recommended one of his former Ibrox stars to Agger who then signed the ex-Ibrox star as part of his introduction to the club.
