Video: How Andy Halliday will be remembered by the Celtic support

YESTERDAY marked the end of Andy Halliday’s spell at Ibrox. The midfielder was released following the expiry of his contract ending his torment at the hands of Celtic for the last four years.

Halliday is a fan favourite with the hordes at Ibrox but also the Celtic Park faithful. Whilst he can take a Championship winners medal at the Petrofac Cup winners medal away with him as he seeks pastures new, he won’t be able to shake off the embarrassment of some of the results he endured at the hands of Celtic.

A 5-1 defeat in September 2016, which Halliday was forced to watch from the stands, in his next outings he lost 1-0, 2-1 before a sensational 1-1 draw for Halliday at Celtic Park.

Unfortunately for Halliday, the final match of that season was a 5-1 defeat at Ibrox to Brendan Rodgers’ Invincibles.

Fast-forward a year to the Scottish Cup semi-final and Rangers go 2-0 down thanks to a Callum McGregor strike. Halliday is replaced by Josh Windass and blows his lid at the Rangers bench.

The whole of the Celtic end erupted in a song celebrating his substitution.

To compound matters for Halliday. A fortnight later, Celtic won 5-0 at Celtic Park to win 7-in-a-row. His torment was complete and his embarrassment would never be forgotten.

Thanks for the memories, Andy.
