ANDY Halliday thanked the Rangers fans for being patient with the team in their last gasp win over Dundee.

It took the Light Blues until the 93rd minute to find the net and the midfielder says the Gers team can more than cope with the pressure an expectant Ibrox can create.

Halliday believes Rangers are back to playing football they want to be playing and thinks Mark Warburton has totally turned things around since he’s been in charge.

The boyhood Ger said:

“We are grown men and I have been in the stands and would have done the same. We know what we are good at and it’s as simple as that and we have to stick with it.

“The fans have done really well to adjust to the new style of play since the manager has come in and we have come on leaps and bounds in 18 months, it is as simple as that.

“That was a lot more like it today, we stuck to what we do best and it’s not just us who have to be patient, I think the fans have to be patient for us as well and I thought they did that today. Thankfully we rewarded them with a win at the end.

“They have stuck with us and have travelled in their numbers every single game and the numbers we take up and down the country in phenomenal.

“We are in a possession based football game because that is what we do best and if you look at St Johnstone in the second-half we got away from that and were very poor then.

“We started to go long from goal kicks and started to do things that we are not used to and St Johnstone managed to have sustained pressure on us for 45 minutes.”

Rangers have a huge six weeks of football coming up and Halliday confessed he can’t wait to welcome the likes of Aberdeen and Hearts to Ibrox in the next month.

With the Light Blues keen to overtake Aberdeen and claim second spot the midfielder knows how crucial the run into the New Year will be.

Halliday said: “We’re looking forward to this schedule we have coming up and we have some fantastic fixtures coming up.

“The international break is a nightmare and I think the fans will be with me on that one.

“We have Partick Thistle next week and then the three after that we are all really looking forward to, two games against Hearts and the game against Aberdeen.

“That is why you’re at this football club, for massive games like that.”
