Steven Gerrard’s Lost Brookside Script Has Legs

So says Paul Gerrad, stood in Lincoln Crown Court, speaking of John Kinsella, an “underworld fixer” accused of taking part in a robbery.

Paul Gerrard goes on:

“Also he was trying to extort a large amount of money from Steven. We immediately contacted the police and asked for protection. This went on for a long time, during which Steven’s car was smashed up and the gangster chased him while he was driving home from training.

“We were introduced by a friend to John Kinsella. John then reassured me and my family he would resolve our nightmare. From that time until this day we have never had any more problems from the Liverpool underworld. Steven and I have total respect for John and what he did for us.”

If this turns out to be a lost script from Brookside, then so be it.

The case continues…
