Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister was left needing hospital treatment after an unprovoked street attack in Leeds.
The former Scotland international was attacked in the early hours of Sunday morning, having been out for a meal with his wife in Leeds City centre.
The 54-year-old reportedly required 10-12 stitches following the attack, whilst his wife also suffered injuries to her wrists as she attempted to wrestle the attacker from her husband.
McAllister had been at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, watching as a Liverpool legends side including Rangers boss Steven Gerrard played an exhibition game against former stars of Italian side AC Milan.
The Mirror reports that police took McAllister to hospital following the attack, where he remained from 3am until midday.
McAllister has been working as an assistant at Rangers since last summer, having joined former Liverpool teammate Gerrard in Glasgow following his appointment as manager.
