Liverpool cult hero Luis Garcia has taken to Twitter with a message for the club and fans following his great goal in the Legends game against Rangers.

The Spaniard opened the scoring for the Anfield side at Ibrox with a superb diving header from Dirk Kuyt's inviting cross, with Gers keeper Neil Alexander unable to keep it out.

Rangers, who missed the chance to break the deadlock when Kris Boyd skewed a penalty wide, then conceded again as Garcia picked up the ball in the box and squared for Patrik Berger.

 

Boyd, Emile Heskey and Peter Lovenkrands also got their names on the scoresheet - all before the break - in an exciting and good-natured exhibition match in Glasgow before 30,488 spectators.

Liverpool showed off Garcia's goal on their Twitter feed and Garcia responded with a short message on how much he enjoyed netting once again in the famous red shirt:

Garcia played for Liverpool between 2004 and 2007, scoring 30 goals in 121 appearances for the Reds, with ten coming in the Champions League, five of those in the knockout stages of the 2005 trophy-winning campaign.
