Rangers' Andy Halliday discusses how he feels turning out at Ibrox

Rangers FC Building

The midfielder returned to the club this summer after a spell with the Gers as a youngster, and says he and the other players are enjoying life under Mark Warburton.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has been discussing his appearances at Ibrox this week on the club's website, with the club winning their first competitive home game of the season against Petershead last weekend.

The 23-year-old is just one of an influx of new signings manager Mark Warburton has made since taking over this summer, and it has completed a remarkable journey for the Glasgow native to finally end up at the club he loves.

Halliday praised the performance given by Rangers in the 3-0 win, before going on to explain just how much playing at Ibrox means to him.

“It’s a very enjoyable style. We’re all football players and we’re at our happiest when we get the ball at our feet," he told the club site.

“We’re playing expansive football and everyone wants to get on the ball, and that’s the main part.

“I don’t want to take anything away from the rest of the boys as they’re all loving life too. It’s an enjoyable and exciting place to be as we try to get back to where we belong.

“Personally though, I’m loving being here and I’ll never take for granted any minute I play on that park.”

The former Livingston man emerged through the ranks at the Almondvale Stadium after being released by the Gers as a youngster, before moving to England for spells with Middlesbrough and Bradford City.

He returned this summer to the club he supported as a boy, following his release from Valley Parade, and Halliday found the net on his debut during the 6-2 win over Hibs in the Challenge Cup.

And given how he must have thought his dream of being a Rangers star had passed after his Gers departure as a youth, it's understandable that Halliday will be enjoying every time he pulls on that jersey.
