CULT hero Marvin Andrews can’t wait to feature at Ibrox again next week as the Rangers Legends return.
Andrews, who spent two seasons at the club between 2004 and 2006, is always delighted to be a part of anything which supports the club’s charitable arm and feels he is in good shape to contribute plenty come next Saturday.
He told us: “It’s always a great feeling to go back to Ibrox and run out on that pitch again – and to pull on that shirt and play in front of the fans who love the club.”
“I love coming back to play, and it’s for a good cause – Rangers does so much charity work trying to help those who are less fortunate.
“I’m always wanting to be a part of these things to help people out in these games.
“I still have that competitive spirit about me, and I still train and look after myself as well as doing a lot of running and keeping myself fit.
“After you play, you still want to be in a decent enough shape and I still play a lot of five-a-side with my mates in Kirkcaldy.
“I love playing football, I love keeping myself in shape and looking after myself. I’m looking forward to the game and it should be exciting and good fun.
“Every legend is at different stages of their lives – some are older, some are much younger – I am one of the younger ones at the moment so I still have some legs to be able to get up and down the pitch.”
Andrews also spoke of how much it means to him to be considered in the same bracket as the club’s other heroes of the past who he will meet up with next week.
He added: “It’s a great honour for me. When you play for Rangers and you learn the history and the names of the players who played for the club – the legends and the teams – it’s amazing to be in the same dressing room as them.
“Sometimes I need to pinch myself to see that it’s really happening. To be among these great legends that represented the most successful club in the world is really, really amazing, and I’m just so happy that I can be part of being in the same dressing room as some of them and be able to chat, laugh and joke with them too.
“I’m really humbled to be a part of that and be on the same pitch as them.”
Tickets remain on sale for next Saturday’s game, priced at £12 for adults, £8 for concessions and £6 for kids.
