Gerard Butler has revealed that he tried to get David Beckham do a guest appearance in his new film Playing For Keeps, but it couldn't work out.

The film sees real-life Celtic supporter Butler play a retired player for the Glasgow team who moves to the US and becomes a presenter on sports TV network ESPN.

"I did try to get David Beckham into the movie," the Daily Express quoted him as telling Magic FM.

"He was going to do it at one point! At the part when I go to ESPN for my audition, David would be walking out kind of patting me on the shoulder," he added. (ANI)
