Rangers coach Gregory Vignal has admitted that he doesn’t think he’d be a popular man in if he injured Gers boss Steven Gerrard in this afternoon’s Legends game between the Light Blues and Liverpool.
Gerrard will play for both sides during the game with Vignal turning out for Rangers – although he is an ex-Liverpool player also – and thinks it will be “weird” playing against “The Boss.”
Vignal admits that he expects the game to be competitive bit acknowledges that the fitness levels might not be the same as they once were.
“It will be weird playing against The Boss. I have been told to make sure I don’t kick him!” Vignal said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“I don’t think I would be too popular if I injured him.
“The match is for a great cause, with all the money raised going to charity, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be competitive.
“When you are a competitor that stays with you all your life. It doesn’t matter what age you are.
“We are not as fit as before, but I can assure you everybody will be going all out to win.”
Fans will be able to pay at the gate this afternoon or watch the game online as the Legends go head-to-head to raise funds for both club’s charity foundations.
With a host of iconic names on both sides, fans will be in for a treat at Ibrox – especially when Gerrard switches sides and represents Rangers.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if the biggest cheer of the afternoon comes when Gerrard emerges from the tunnel wearing the blue shirt after spending the opening 45 in a red one.
