Interestingly, Gerrard will wear his famous number eight jersey for the Reds to begin with, but the Ibrox boss has teased he could well wear blue for the second 45 minutes.

As quoted by rangers.co.uk, he said of the Saturday game: "I always look forward to a game of football.

"I’m going to play for Liverpool and who knows, there might be a little cameo in a blue shirt as well we’ll have to see."

Rather curiously, the number eight shirt on the club's official squad list for the occasion has been left blank.

The stars are clearly aligning for the England legend to finally make his bow as a player at Ibrox.

Fans have previously been entertained by small video snippets of the manager taking part in training.

Now though they'll get a chance to see him in action in a match setting.
