Rangers’ 2015 summer signing shares his opinion on Gers fans

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday speaks highly of the Ibrox faithful.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has told the club’s official website that the Gers fans have been fantastic all season.

Halliday, who joined Rangers in the summer of 2015, has spoken highly of the Scottish club’s supporters.

The 24-year-old former Livingston, Middlesbrough and Bradford City midfielder has said that the fans’ support does help the players perform better on the pitch.

“At the start of the season, I said they [the fans] would maybe have to be patient and buy into what we’re trying to do, but they have been first class with us this season and trust me, it does help on the park when games are a wee bit ugly and a wee bit tighter,” Halliday told Rangers’ official website.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 60 points from 24 matches.

Mark Warburton’s side are eight points clear of Hibernian, who are currently second in the standings and have a game in hand.

The Gers will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Kilmarnock away from home at Rugby Park in the Scottish Cup fifth-round replay.

Kilmarnock will head into the game on the back of a 2-0 victory over Motherwell away from home in the Scottish Premiership.
