THE something old, something new and something borrowed give brides luck on their big day. Marvin Andrews is the something blue.

The former Rangers defender ensures couples are a match made in heaven after becoming ordained as a minister a couple of years ago.

Andrews has seen his diary steady fill up as football fans ask the 43-year-old to play a starring role at the alter.

He returned home to San Juan in Trinidad and Tobago last year to help former international team-mate Jason Scotland tie the knot. And he has been inundated with requests from happy couples closer to home.

Andrews said: “I’m just enjoying life, to be honest. Just living life, enjoying life, doing bits and pieces.

“ I do a lot of Q&As with Rangers, I come back to Ibrox every so often and do a bit of hospitality and I do a lot of charity matches and legends matches.

“I keep myself busy enough. Life is all good, I can’t complain at all.

“I have become a Minister so I preach in my church and I am doing a lot of weddings. I have got four weddings already booked for this year. I did four or five last year.

“I haven’t done any Celtic couples, but I’m sure I did one where one was Rangers and the other was Celtic. It is all in good spirits and good fun.

“People know that I am doing it and it has been around now that I am doing it. I did Jason Scotland’s wedding last year over in Trinidad and it was made known.

“After that, I did two weddings last year in the Blue Room and a couple in Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

“I get messages from people saying they are getting married and they would love me to take the ceremony because of the type of person that I am and the fact I am well-known, if you want to put it like that. For some people, it is good for them to say ‘Marvin Andrews did the ceremony!’ It is all good fun.

“There is a lot of laugher and we try to have fun with it. It is a serious occasion when two people commit their lives to one another and I do the serious bit when it comes to the Bible and the vows.

“But, at the same time, I try to make it a bit lively and a bit fun because everybody knows Marvin Andrews likes have a smile on his face, likes to have a joke. That is just how it is.”
