Halliday was the surprise name on the Gers team-sheet for today’s Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden, with Josh Windass left on the bench by Graeme Murty, with the Ibrox side lining-up in a 4-3-3 formation from the start.
But it wasn’t long before the Hoops began to take control of proceedings at the national stadium, and Tom Rogic opened the scoring on 22 minutes, you sensed it would be a long afternoon for the fans supporting the Govan club.
And that was proved to be the case when Callum McGregor profited from a poor clearance by Russell Martin on 38 minutes, and coolly slotted it into the far corner to make it 2-0.
Murty had seen enough, and he decided to make the bold move of bringing on a sub before the half-time break, with Windass on the replace Halliday in the 39th minute – and the outgoing midfielder was not one bit pleased:
What do you think of the incident?
Should Murty have waited until half-time? Is Halliday right to be so upset?
