Rangers are set for big changes in the summer transfer window when Steven Gerrard officially takes up the mantle of club manager.

The Liverpool legend will surely be watching every game that the Gers play in and he would have been horrified by some of the performances in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Tuesday night.

One player in particular that Gerrard would have been wincing over would be Andy Halliday, who had yet another shocker for the Light Blues at left-back.

In doesn’t matter what position the 26-year-old plays in for Rangers, he is abysmal, and it’s no wonder than he only managed a handful of appearances for Azerbaijani club FK Gabala in the first-half of the season before his loan deal was torn up early in January.

It really should go without saying, but if a player is not good enough for Azerbaijani football, then he’s not good enough for Rangers, or probably any top-flight league in Western Europe.

There’s already a few natural left-backs at Ibrox, so why isn’t Jimmy Nicholl giving some of them a chance? Lee Hodson may be horrendous but he would probably be better than Halliday while Myles Beerman signed a new deal on Monday so should be have started?

Hopefully Gerrard can see this as someone who is currently looking from the outside in, because once he gets into the thick of it, there’s going to be a lot of plate spinning in what is bound to be a busy summer transfer window.

For all the ins and outs expected, one out that definitely must happen is Halliday. God knows where, but just get binned.
