‘Far away, not close! Rangers reality check for Gerrard,’ Petrov

Stiliyan Petrov looked back to last weekend at Celtic Park and forward to today’s rather more important match, when Celtic supporters get together to see some legends return – this time for a kind of competitive match against Liverpool/ Villa legends selected by James Milner and managed by Jurgen Klopp.

But it was last week’s experience for another Liverpool legend that Petrov started his TalkSport interview discussing. Petrov, a Celtic goalscorer in that fabulous 6-2 win, reckons that Steven Gerrard got his own reality check last Sunday when his side came up short all over the park in their personal battles with the Hoops.

“Now Steven (Gerrard) will know how far they are from Celtic. He will assess the situation, how far they are still away from Celtic.

“My old club got the perfect result and performance and they showed they can play like the Champions,” Stan said.

“It will take some performance to beat them. I think the fans have now calmed down after an intense couple of weeks when they did not make the Champions League.

“But you know what, they have made the Europa League and beat their rivals Rangers and Parkhead is bouncing again.”

Looking ahead to today’s Match for Cancer – these events at Celtic Park as always so joyous occasions so get along if you can – Petrov summed up what’s on offer.

“We’ve got two great managers in Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp and some great players such as John Hartson, James Milner, Scott Brown, Hristo Stoichkov and Jermain Defoe.

“I hope we get a big crowd. I went to visit two hospitals yesterday – Glasgow Children’s Hospital and the Beatson and I heard some inspirational stories. The main thing is raising money for these people fighting cancer.

“It affected me and I know how important the support is. I had the support of millions of people and they gave me strength and the belief I could make it.”
