Halliday: “I rejected other contracts to win a deal at Ibrox”


New Rangers’ signing Andy
Halliday has admitted he not only rejected offers from other clubs in favour of
Rangers, but outright dismissed contracts in preference of trialling at Murray Park.
The midfielder admits that seems
odd to others, that he overlooked hard offers from various suitors in favour of
a trial where winning a contract was anything but certain, but concedes he just
could not turn down Rangers.
He said:

“Obviously I had concrete offers elsewhere so
people found it maybe a little bit strange that I was going to come on a trial
basis, with contract offers on the table, but if you get a chance of signing
for your boyhood heroes you’re not going to turn your nose up and I’m going to
take it.”
Halliday has certainly had a
decent enough career, and is a developing talent, so it is by no means a
surprise that other clubs wanted to secure his services, given he was a free
agent, but the former Bradford man was willing to risk those other offers as he
had confidence in his own ability to win the deal at Ibrox.
He went on:
“Obviously I was confident enough in my own
ability that I was going to prove myself and that’s how it’s worked out.”
Rangers fans always enjoy ‘one of
our own’ managing to get into the dressing room, and play for the shirt, and
they can certainly rest assured Halliday will.
