John Terry will not face Steven Gerrard’s side in the Europa League if he moves to Spartak Moscow, as he has missed a Uefa deadline.
The 37-year-old has kept everyone guessing about his next move, but whatever happens we now know he won’t face his former England team-mate’s side.
He has been without a club since leaving Villa Park after their play-off heartache against Fulham in May.
But the former Chelsea captain was offered £3m-a-year deal by the Russian side and he’s been teasing fans on social media by posting cryptic tweets about medical tests and flying to an unknown destination.
His move to Russia would be a big money earner, but the deal is reportedly only for one year but will have an extension option.
Spartak Moscow have been drawn against Rangers in the group stages of the Europa League, but they won’t be able to give their new signing a run out in the competition.
Terry may have been studying for his coaching badges, but he’s been keeping himself in shape in order to keep his playing career alive as long as possible.
