Responding on Twitter, the former England international wrote: “Finally I’ve found out another club did want to sign me, & thought I was half decent!!!!!!!”

This comes after ex-Rangers boss McCoist revealed on talkSPORT that he looked into the possibility of signing the defender in 2013 when the Light Blues were getting ready to take on the Scottish third tier.

He made the call to Anfield but the player decided against prolonging his career after leaving the only club he would ever play for.

McCoist said: “I tried to sign him, believe it or not, when he was leaving Liverpool.

“I phoned Gary McAllister and tried to get him, but obviously he was going into the media circles and is doing very well at that.”
