Andy Halliday: This is how Rangers masterminded comeback win v Corinthians
Andy Halliday has given his reasons for how Rangers managed to mastermind a second-half comeback against Corinthians.
The Light Blues came back from two goals down to defeat the Brazilian side 4-2 thanks to two goals from Alfredo Morelos and strikes from James Tavernier and Halliday.
And Halliday disclosed that the Gers didn’t drastically alter they style of play despite going two goals behind.
“It was very pleasing. I thought the boys actually did okay in the first half and they moved the ball pretty well,” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“Two mistakes and they got two goals so I thought in the second half we tried to do pretty much the same, press them higher, and we managed to nick it off them quite a few times in the final third.
“It was a good comeback and we managed to get a few good goals.”
Halliday’s goal in the victory game in only his second match since returning to Ibrox. The 26-year-old spent the first-half of last season on loan at Azerbaijan side Gabala, after falling out of favour with former manager Pedro Caixinha.
But with Graeme Murty now in charge until the end of season, the midfielder’s career at Rangers has been given a new lease of life.
The Gers made it two wins out of two in the Florida Cup with the victory over Corinthians, a goal by Josh Windass was enough to defeat Atletico Minerio 1-0 in the other match.
Graeme Murty will be hoping that his squad take the performances from these victories into the second-half of the domestic season, which begins next Sunday with a Scottish Cup tie against non-league Fraserburgh.
