ANDY HALLIDAY has thanked Steven Gerrard for the faith he has shown in him since he took over as Rangers boss in the summer.

Halliday spoke to the media yesterday and was honest in his assessment that he felt his future may have been about to be away from the club that he has supported all his life.

The midfielder has made twelve appearances already this season and he has said he’s ready to repay the faith the manager had in him, every time he pulls on a Rangers jersey.

He said: “I’ve been pretty honest in reflecting and saying that I probably didn’t think my future lay at Rangers.

”Thankfully the gaffer gave me that chance to show what I can do and obviously take me on the trip to Marbella.

”He showed a lot of faith in me and I’m in debt to him for that and it’s just up to me to repay it in performances this season.

”I’m happy when I get a jersey, so wherever it is it’s business time. It’s just about putting a good performance in.”

The Light Blues make the trip to Hamilton tomorrow afternoon, hoping to win the first three points of the season away from home in the Ladbrokes Premiership. Halliday said: “We believe in what we are doing here.

”Obviously we’ve made Ibrox a bit of a fortress this season in all competitions and I’m sure sooner rather than later we’ll reflect that and start taking those performances into away games and like the gaffer said, the big opportunity is to put that right on Sunday.”
