ANDY HALLIDAY is happy to sacrifice his place in the Rangers starting XI if it means the team continues to win.

The midfield man was a late substitute in yesterday’s win over Partick Thistle, while he was also only a replacement in the victory over Aberdeen last week.

Despite that though, he is loving life under new boss Pedro Caixinha and told RangersTV.tv: “It’s been positive. I’ve always spoken about this club coming first, and us as players come second. As long as we are picking up results, I’m happy. It’s disappointing that I’ve been on the bench for a few games, but when the boys are picking up results you can’t argue.

“All I care about is results at the end of the day. Thankfully, I have had minutes to come on in the last few games to try and show what I can do. Like I say though, the most pleasing thing has been the results.”

The win over Thistle was an impressive one in Halliday’s eyes, and he singled out young defenders Myles Beerman and David Bates for their efforts in the victory.

He added: “It was a another positive result and we have just continued on from another positive result up at Pittodrie last week.

“It was a nervy start and I didn’t think we were at our free-flowing best in the first half-hour, but something we have spoken about a lot this season is going a goal up.

“We have given away too many goals this season, and we have also spoken about being a lot more clinical when the chances come, and I thought we did that.

“I don’t know how many shots we had up until then, but it was a fantastic ball in from Tav and a great header from Kenny.

“I think once the first one went in, we settled down and were the much better team for the rest of the game. The second half was really comfortable – we got our foot on the ball, moved it around and I think Partick started to tire towards the end. We managed to create a lot more chances towards the end of the game and it could have been a bit more comfortable – maybe three or four nil.

“We’ll certainly take the three points. All credit to the back four, and particular Batesy and Myles – I thought they were really comfortable today, and three games at the start of your Rangers career with no goals conceded is really impressive.”
