Rangers boss Steven Gerrard showed he still has some of the old magic left in his right foot by scoring and assisting a goal during a bounce match at Ibrox this afternoon – before going on to miss a penalty.
The Liverpool legend turns 39 at the end of this month and retired from playing back in 2016, but it seems the ex-England captain hasn’t lost his touch, as Viewfield Rovers discovered earlier today.
Playing inside the Gers’ iconic stadium, Gerrard skippered a side containing his staff against the amateur team, but explained on his Instagram how he could only manage a 4-4 draw before going on to miss a spot-kick in the subsequent penalty shootout:
Regardless of the result, we’re pretty sure the lads playing for Viewfield were probably delighted just to be sharing the same pitch as the Champions League winner.
He might be pushing 40, and not as mobile as he used to be, but we’re willing to bet Gerrard is still pretty tasty with a ball at his feet.
