Andy Halliday blown away by Rangers duo in win v Corinthians
Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has singled out the duo of Alfredo Morelos and Sean Goss for praise after the Gers’ comeback 4-2 win over Brazilian champions Corinthians.
Halliday grabbed his first goal since his loan deal with Azerbaijani side Gabal was cut short sandwiched by an Alfredo Morelos brace before James Tavernier sealed the win with the Gers fourth goal.
The Ibrox side were 2-0 down at half-time before launching a remarkable comeback and scoring four without reply.
Halliday was delighted with Goss and Morelos’ performances but admitted the main thing was getting to know his new team-mates and style of play.
“He was excellent. I think the second goal especially was a very good finish,” Halliday said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“The first one was a great ball from Gossy who I thought was excellent as well today. So yeah, Alfredo put in a very good performance.
“The most important thing was to come here and get to know each other a bit better and sort of emphasise our style of play that we want to take forward into the second half of the season.
“But don’t get me wrong we had two games we certainly wanted to win and we’ve managed to do that.”
The 26-year-old made his first appearance since returning in Friday morning’s win over Atletico Mineiro and was handed the captain’s armband before being handed the armband again for the second-half against Corinthians.
Halliday’s Rangers contract runs until 2020 and the midfielder will hope to impress after being handed a chance to salvage his Rangers career by Murty.
Halliday has had spells with Livingston, Bradford, Walsall, Blackpool and Middlesbrough before signing for his boyhood heroes in 2015 after impressing then-manager Mark Warburton on trial.
In other Rangers transfer news, it has been reported that Gers are homing in on a top flight player who wants to move to the Ibrox.
