Rangers fans react to news Andy Halliday and Jason Holt will be leaving

Steven Gerrard has informed Rangers pair they can leave Glasgow as he continues Ibrox revamp.

It appears Rangers are ready to let two of their more experienced players go this summer, according to reports in Scotland this week. The Scottish Sun is reporting that new Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has informed both Andy Halliday and Jason Holt that they can leave the club this summer.

Both players were signed by former Gers boss Mark Warburton. Halliday, a lifelong Rangers fan, joined the club on a free transfer from Bradford in 2015 and helped the side win promotion to the Premiership in his first season at the club.

His career at Ibrox has not been uneventful, with a now infamous bust-up with Joey Barton and a loan spell in Azerbaijan with Gabala after falling foul of Pedro Caixinha.

However, what has become clear in recent months, is that the duo are not good enough for Rangers if they want to catch Old Firm rivals Celtic.

The pair are limited in terms of their ability and, simply put, they are not good enough to take Rangers back to the top of Scottish football.

With that in mind, Gerrard would rather clear them off the Ibrox wage-bill and bring in some fresh faces to Glasgow.

One thing that cannot be doubted however is the pair’s commitment. Both always gave their all for the badge and, for that, Rangers fans will always show their appreciation. No doubt the Ibrox faithful will wish them all the best in their next move…
