RANGERS midfielder Andy Halliday was brought up a stone’s throw from Ibrox Stadium, now he is living the dream as a Light Blues player.
Gers fans travel from all over the United Kingdom and sometimes beyond to watch their team in action at Ibrox, but when Halliday was a young lad he never had to worry about getting trains, planes or automobiles to attend games.
Up to the age of 13, the dynamic Gers midfielder lived with his family in a ground floor flat on Copland Road – 190 Copland Road to be exact – and he only had to take around 300 steps to get from the front door of his tenement block to the Main Stand’s grand entrance.
Looking out the back windows of the property, Andy was able to see the stadium – albeit his view was obstructed by Edmiston House – but more importantly he was able to soak up the atmosphere on match days and dream of one day playing for his boyhood heroes.
RangersTV caught up with Andy in the run up to yesterday’s match against his former club Livingston and chatted about growing up in the shadows of Ibrox Stadium, his career and what it’s like to have joined the club he supports.
