Rangers manager Graeme Murty has named his starting XI to face Celtic in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden – and Gers fans were delighted to see Andy Halliday come into the side.

The Ibrox boss has made one change to the team which faced Dundee last weekend with Halliday replacing Kenny Miller as the Light Blues reshuffle their midfield and look like going with three in central midfield.

The Gers confirmed the team news on their official Twitter account.

Halliday’s last start for the Gers came against Falkirk in the last round of the Scottish Cup as the Gers romped to a 4-1 win, and the supporters were raving over his return.

The Gers have not won against their bitter rivals since beating them on penalties at the same stage of the 2016 Scottish Cup – a run stretching back nine games – and the supporters will be delighted if they can repeat the outcome.

Here are some of the fans’ best comments on Twitter:

Murty’s side haven’t lifted a major trophy since Walter Smith’s side won the Scottish Premiership in 2011 and defeat at Hampden would see the Gers’ trophy-less run equal a 107-year-old club record.

The winner will meet Motherwell in the final at Hampden on May 19th after Stephen Robinson’s side booked their place with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Aberdeen in the other semi-final on Saturday.

In other Rangers news, this Ibrox legend revealed he was gutted at the news of David Bates agreeing to join Hamburg.
