Creepy Charles Green has revealed how he tried to sign Steven Gerrard by handing a business card to the Liverpool captain’s wife!
The alleged incident took place in a London hotel in 2013 a year after the Yorkshire businessman had founded Sevco. It isn’t known if Gerrard ever received the business card or if it was dumped along with the others picked up by his lovely wife who has refused to join her husband in Glasgow.
Gerrard was about to set off on his famous slippy season, with a first EPL winners medal in his grasp he slipped in a home match against Chelsea to leave a gap in his medal collection.
At the time of the creepy approach Gerrard was the England captain going into a World Cup season. It is unlikely that he would have given much thought for ditching Brendan Rodgers and Anfield to team up with Ally McCoist, Lee McCulloch and Ian Black in the third tier of Scottish football.
Gerrard stayed on for two more seasons at Anfield, in the summer of 2013 McCoist brought in Nicky Clark, Jon Daly, Dick Foster, Nicky Law and Bilel Mohsni.
? “I had a plan for Steven Gerrard to come to Rangers as a player.”
? “My friends [in Dubai] have incredible wealth, that was stage 2 of the plan.”

When I was at Rangers, one day I had a meeting in the Mayfair ‘otel in London. It was full. Mayfair ‘otel prior to Covid is always packed. In that lunch time meeting a lady with some of her friends came into the ‘otel and they were ‘aving a girls party at lunch time.
It was Steven Gerrard’s wife. I gave her my business card as chief executive of Rangers and said ‘I’d like to ‘ave a chat with your ‘usband’.
Now, it never went anywhere but I ‘ad a plan and that plan was instead of Gerrard going to America – his agent pushed him that way – it was for ‘im to come to Rangers as a player because he could still play at that point. ‘e could probably still play now to be fair. That was in 2013 – these are the things that no-one knows.
Two years later Gerrard moved to LA Galaxy, Jim White never questioned Green on any details of his creepy approach to Mrs Gerrard.
