Rangers midfielder outlines personal target for rest of season

Rangers Gates

Andy Halliday says he wants to reach 10 goals before the end of campaign and also wants to start netting more at Ibrox.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has revealed to the club website that his target at the start of the season was to score 10 goals for the club, and said that he is keen to start finding the net more at Ibrox.

The 24-year-old joined his boyhood club last summer from Bradford City and scored on his debut in the 6-2 win over Hibernian in the Challenge Cup in July.

Since then he has added six more strikes, with his seventh of the season coming in the 4-0 Scottish Cup victory over Dundee last weekend.

However, that was only Halliday's second goal in front of the Rangers fans at Ibrox, and he admitted that he is desperate to start scoring more at Ibrox in the remaining weeks of the season.

He told the club's website: [Seven goals] is not too bad for a holding midfielder so I’m pretty happy with that. The ideal pick [for my next strike] would obviously be Celtic but I’m aiming for more than one goal in April hopefully.

"I played further forward at the weekend and that’s four games further forward now and I have managed to get two goals. The most important thing was that it was only my second goal at Ibrox and I want to get as many goals there as possible.

"I have scored five away goals this season so hopefully I start to score a few more at home. I set myself a target of 10 goals at the start of the season so I’m not too far away from that now."

Halliday has been enjoying a successful first season in his hometown of Glasgow and has been a virtual ever-present for Mark Warburton's side, making 36 appearances in all competitions and missing just one Scottish Championship match.

He is likely to get his chance to play for the Gers in the top flight next season, with the club 12 points clear at the top of the table ahead of Friday night's clash with Morton.
