Steven Gerrard took Rangers’ pre-match presser in his usual style. Calm, relaxed and incredibly honest about the aftermath of the Aberdeen disappointment, he called for a reaction in tomorrow’s match with Kilmarnock.

And whilst Steven Gerrard mused on everything from Kris Boyd’s controversial comments to the sectarian abuse he received against Aberdeen, was there another reveal on show?

And it doesn’t concern anything Gerrard said. It’s more about who was sitting alongside him.

Andy Halliday was also present at the presser today and discussed the impact the result from Tuesday has had on the side. He also spoke about Rangers’ ambitions for the rest of the season.


But his very presence also suggested something else. That he could well be starting against Kilmarnock tomorrow.

Borna Barisic has been off form and has struggled to make an impact on the side. Andy Halliday has proven at times this season to be a perfectly capable left back.

And whilst Rangers poor form isn’t entirely down to Barisic, he’s probably due getting dropped.

Halliday offers more bite at left back and Kilmarnock will be coming to play a physical match. It’ll be much the same as Tuesday night if Rangers can’t match Steve Clarke’s side’s bottle on the park.

And Halliday certainly offers that much more at present than the stumbling Borna Barisic.
