Andy Halliday was the goal hero as Rangers beat Raith Rovers 1-0 at Stark’s Park tonight.
It capped a turbulent week for the Ibrox midfielder, as just eight days ago he was sent off in his side’s win over Morton at Cappielow for apparently excessively celebrating their second goal.
Watching the incident, it’s difficult to see exactly why Halliday was given his marching orders by referee Barry Cook, but he still had to sit out Rangers’ league clash with Falkirk at the weekend through suspension.
Back in the team tonight, the midfielder was the hero as he scored the only goal of the game in the Scottish Championship leaders’ 1-0 victory over Raith.
And his celebration was so understated, it must have been aimed at Cook because, after scoring, he puts his hand to cover his mouth and goes on to simply shake hands with his Rangers team-mates.
He definitely won’t be getting a ban for this:

It was another big win for Mark Warburton’s men as they maintained their eight-point lead over Hibs at the top of the Championship.
The Hibees also managed a 1-0 win, beating Greenock Morton at Cappielow thanks to Anthony Stokes’ goal.
