The tale of two talismans

Broadfoot: Exploding egg accident was no joke

Kirk Broadfoot has revealed how he could have lost his sight following a domestic accident.

The Rangers defender suffered facial burns when an egg he was trying to poach exploded in his face.

Speaking of the incident which happened last month, Broadfoot said: ''The accident was no joke. I could have lost my eyesight.

''There was boiling water and glass in my face. A bit of glass had to be cleaned out of my eye too. I was lucky it was not worse.''

Broadfoot is expected to be out of action for several months after undergoing foot surgery, an injury which has left him unable to jet off on holiday this summer.

He added: ''I've been told that if I fly anywhere there is a danger I could get a blood clot. It's just not worth the risk.''
