Gor Mahia players have been offered a lifetime opportunity to impress upon former Liverpool player Steven Gerrard for the possibility of attracting the attention of top Scottish club Rangers FC.

This follows revelation on Friday that the Scottish club is expected to send scouts to grace the highly billed friendly match pitting Gor Mahia and Everton at Goodison Park in November.

This was confirmed by Gor Mahia’s English coach Dylan Kerr.

“Just got confirmation that Glasgow Rangers will be sending scouts to see our match Everton vs Gor Mahia on November 6th,” Kerr said.


Rangers scouts will watch this match at Goodison Park to specifically monitor the potential talents available within the Gor Mahia ranks before providing feedback to Gerrard, who is the club’s current manager.

Gor Mahia will be facing the high flying Everton’s first team in a clash that has been arranged by top gaming firm SportPesa.

The fixture has attracted excitement within the Kenyan football scene.

K’Ogalo earned the right to play in this match after winning the eight-team SportPesa Super Cup tournament that was hosted at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium in June.

Current Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama and former Ugandan forward David Obua are the only East African players to have played in Scotland in recent times.
