Former Rangers centre-back Marvin Andrews spent his years at Ibrox Stadium without insurance – trusting God would be his protector.

Retired Trinidadian defender Andrews spent two years with the Scottish Premier League side.

But when injuries threatened to plague his career, his faith was set in God. He revealed: “I told them, ‘No, God will heal my knee.’ Then we had a big meeting, David Murray, all his staff, all the doctors, all the physios in the room – all of them on one side, and me and God sitting on the other side.

“So, me and God showed up in the meeting. They said to me ‘Marv, we respect your faith, we respect your belief in God, but we need to do what is best for Rangers Football Club. We just wanted to let you know that based on you rejecting our advice from the medical standpoint, we’d like to give you a disclaimer that you sign so that you take full responsibility.’

“So, I signed the disclaimer, my faith believing that. And all that time, my knee was massive – the size of my knee was unbelievable.

“But the faith that I had in God, I said, ‘No problem, I will trust that God will look after me.’”

Andrews’ faith paid off as he went on to enjoy another decade in professional football after his spell at Rangers.
