Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to react after Andy Halliday found the back of the net in a 5-0 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup.
Steven Gerrard’s men now find themselves in the quarter-finals of the competition, with Colombian international Alfredo Morelos bagging four goals on the night.
In Halliday’s case, however, his goal after coming on as a substitute for Borna Barisic represents a phenomenal turnaround in his career at Ibrox.
It was only in 2017 that the 27-year-old was told he can leave the club on loan, and was expected to be ordered to train with the Under-20 side.
The natural midfielder is now a fans’ favourite with the Gers supporters, and has scored three goals in 24 appearances across all competitions this season to emerge as a key man under Gerrard.
Halliday has unquestionably been through a lot during his time with Rangers, and fans of the Scottish giants on Twitter didn’t hold back in their praise of him after his latest strike…
Andy Halliday is an absolute beltur🤩

Andy Halliday is genuinely putting himself in contention as a starting left back. Barasic has to up his game.

Take my hat off to Andy Halliday
Was a constant scape goat
Told twice he’s can look for another club
Papped out on loan to Gabala
But still he stayed & fought for his place 👊
Andy Halliday Rangers unofficial captain 👏
