ROMANTIC Rangers fans planning to tie the knot are expected to flock to a tiny church in Fife to be married by former Ibrox star Marvin Andrews.

The 30-year-old is to be ordained as a minister next week at the Zion Praise Centre in Kirkcaldy next week, allowing him to conduct weddings and communions for his congregation.

Pastor Joe Nwokoye, head of the 120-strong congregation, said he believed fans who idolise the Trinidadian would head for Fife to get married.

"We already get a lot of people coming to the church on the back of Marvin's fame to hear him preaching and watch his healing," the clergyman said.

"So of course there will be fans who want him to carry out their wedding ceremony."

However, Pastor Nwokoye warned football-loving couples they would need to join the congregation and attend meetings for at least a month before Andrews would wed them.

The former Rangers player, who once rejected a move to Dundee United because God told him to and claimed the Almighty healed an injury that threatened his career, has been with the church since his time at Raith Rovers.

Andrews is understood to be in talks with a number of clubs after being released by Rangers over the summer. The defender became a cult hero at Ibrox for his never-say-die attitude and has attracted interest from a number of English sides.
