ANDY Halliday praised his teammates’ ability to bounce back and is certain Rangers will return to form against Kilmarnock this Wednesday.
Halliday has been a regular since Gerrard arrived at the club making 28 appearances and scoring twice so far this season, showcasing his ability to play in a number of positions. He believes tomorrow’s William Hill Scottish Cup fifth round replay is Rangers’ biggest game of the season so far.
Despite a dip in form the Ibrox-born-boy is confident that the strong character within the side will shine through and that the Gers will once again respond with a run of positive results.
Speaking to the media the 27-year-old said: “In terms of reaction I think we got a big reaction in training yesterday – which is the start we certainly need but actions speak louder than words so we want to see that big reaction tomorrow.
“I think we have bounced back from adversity really well this season and when we have had a poor result we have gone on a run. We can’t have too many more adversities because it is going to slip away fast.”
Halliday then went on to speak about the significance of Wednesday’s Scottish cup replay to the club’s season.
He continued: “In my mind this is the biggest game of the season so far, it is competition we are still in, it’s a competition we are still going to try and win and we only have four games left to try and win it. Kilmarnock is the next hurdle to get over.
Halliday is one of many Rangers players to have improved under Gerrard and praised the manager’s honest approach to man management.
“You work under certain managers who tip toe around the truth and it turns out to be a lie so I would take black and white truth all day.
“The gaffer has been fair with the players all season, certainly with me; I have known where I stood from day one.”
