Separated at birth

One would think it’s a no-brainer: to not just play for the most successful football club in the UK in the history of football which you have supported all your life, and which is also the current European championship-winning side, but to captain it, earning £100,000 a week for doing so and becoming in the process the most coveted football player in Europe. Not so with Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard. Perhaps it’s an attempt to bring himself down to earth with a huge slice of reality pie, but hopefully passing himself off as a humble lawyer in the form of McGrigors construction and engineering director Scott Johnson will place the Kop hero’s feet back on terra firma. Not for him a dash down South to join those tarts at Chelsea-linked Skadden. The boy still prefers that Northern air.
