Andy Halliday has been pictured holding an FC Gabala jersey after agreeing a season-long loan move to the club.
The Scottish midfielder was told he is not in Pedro Caixinha’s plans for the coming campaign so he’s found a short term home in Azerbaijan.
It was first reported by thescottishsun.co.uk’s Robert Grieve and since then a picture has emerged of Halliday holding the Gabala jersey after signing on the dotted line:
It’s an unusual move for the midfielder considering there aren’t many Scots who have played in the Azerbaijan Premier League.
But it will be interesting to see how he does and if he comes back a better player from the season spent in the country.
Halliday scored 15 goals in 92 appearances for Rangers over the last two seasons and was instrumental as they won promotion from the Championship in his first campaign.
He had to settle for a place off the bench regularly last term and is now out of favour with Caixinha after the Portuguese man decided to bring other midfield options in to the club.
