Footage emerged online showing Steven Gerrard in the Celtic Park tunnel as his side prepared to do battle with the very best team in Scotland and well, he looked like a man out of his depth.
The footage, which was posted under a BBC 5 Live Sports conversation between Chris Sutton, Paul Ince and Ian Wright shows the Ibrox boss looking more than nervous as both teams lined up ready to go.
A rousing version of You’ll Never Walk Alone bellowed out around Celtic Park just before the camera cut to Gerrard – a song that would usually make the Scouse feel at home.

Gerrard once famously described the noise at Celtic Park as deafening and when he played on the turf as a player for Liverpool he was lost in proceedings for quite some time – such was the ferocity and passion of the home support.
I wonder if his players sensed his trepidation.
The Ibrox gaffer set up against Celtic like he was afraid of what they could do and as much as his team tried to stop the bhoys playing, it just wasn’t enough.
