Fans have taken to Twitter to hit out at Andy Halliday for his reaction to being substituted by Graeme Murty in the first half of Rangers’ 4-0 Scottish Cup mauling by Celtic.

Halliday was seen shouting in the direction of manager Graeme Murty after being substituted four minutes before the break, shortly after Celtic had romped into a 2-0 lead in the semi-final clash at Hampden Park.

Murty insisted he would let the dust settle before speaking to the player as he apologised for the Hampden horrorshow.

New images emerged on social media on Monday, posted by the Rangers Culture Twitter account, of Halliday also arguing with a supporter as he had to be restrained by teammate Bruno Alves before taking his place on the substitute’s bench.

The midfielder, who is boyhood Rangers fan, had been selected in a three-man midfield alongside Graham Dorrans and Greg Docherty as Murty attempted to knock Celtic out of their stride.

But the selection failed to pay dividends and the manager recognised that by withdrawing Halliday in humiliating style before the break.

Supporters on social media were unimpressed by the conduct of Halliday, with many claiming he should be sold immediately by the club for behaving in such fashion.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
