Video: Steven Gerrard Says Andy Halliday ‘Nearly Lost His Eye’ in Livingston Game

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed midfielder Andy Halliday ‘nearly lost his eye’ during this afternoon’s match with Livingston.

Halliday, filling-in at left-back in the absence of Borna Barisic, started this afternoon’s 1-0 victory over Gary Holt’s men at Ibrox, with Scott Arfield riffling home the winner.

It looked like Halliday’s game might be finished after he sustained a nasty-looking head knock after falling over the advertising hoardings, and his manager has verified the severity of the injury, whilst praising his player’s grit and determination to carry on:

Despite picking up all three points against a tough opponent, the result leaves Rangers 10 points behind bitter rivals Celtic in the race for the Premiership title, albeit having played a game less.

Halliday hasn’t always been first-pick under Gerrard at Rangers, but does this incident underline the fact he possesses the commitment and desire some of the other Gers players perhaps lack at times?
