Following Steven Gerrard’s mid-season departure of Rangers for the vacant hotseat at Villa Park, a Liverpool fan shared a clip of the ex-Red’s reaction to a tour of the Scottish outfit’s changing rooms.
The former No.8 was frozen to the spot as he noticed a picture of the Queen hanging on the wall before turning to the camera, offering a restrained reaction.
It almost appeared as if the 41-year-old was on the verge of bursting out laughing, which wouldn’t have been a good look as far as his then employers and the club’s fanbase would have been concerned at the time.
Having grown up in Liverpool, however – a city with a reputation for being anti-establishment – we’d imagine that Gerrard would have been more than a little taken aback by what he witnessed on the day.
