Sky pundit: Huge Rangers fans favourite in form of his life could be axed for clash v Celtic

By Richard Parks

Sky Sports pundit Davie Provan has predicted that Sean Goss could make way in midfield for Andy Halliday for Rangers’ clash against Celtic on Sunday.

The former Celtic midfielder has claimed that one of Graeme Murty’s final selection posers is the identity of Greg Docherty’s central midfield partner.

Goss, 22, has started all seven of Rangers’ Scottish Premiership fixtures since joining on loan from QPR in the January window, while Halliday has started just the last two, as a makeshift left-back due to injuries to Declan John and skipper Lee Wallace.

“It’s a choice between Sean Goss and Andy Halliday to partner Greg Docherty in the holding roles,” Provan wrote in his weekly Scottish Sun column.

“Goss has been outstanding, but Murty might feel Halliday would bring more to this game.”

Football Insider verdict:

Provan appears to be way off the mark on this one. If Graeme Murty ditched Goss for the biggest match of Rangers’ season, he would face a riot from the stands. The loanee has made a huge impact since joining from QPR, with fans making it abundantly clear on social media they are desperate from their club to convert his loan into a permanent transfer. Goss’ composure and distribution is at a completely different level to the willing but limited Halliday, whose allegiance to Rangers is appreciated but he is certainly not the player to give Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham the runaround in midfield. Goss is in the form of his life and is good enough to fight fire with fire.
