Rangers star Andy Halliday has admitted that being able to become the first Gers side to record a post-split cleans sweep is a “pretty good record” for the Light Blues to chase ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Kilmarnock.

The Gers have incredibly never won all five of their games after the split but could achieve it this season with a win at Rugby Park.

Halliday admits that after the quality of some of the sides that have come before the current squad, it’s a “good incentive” for Steven Gerrard’s squad.

“We have never made a clean sweep in the top six and it’s a pretty good record to try and chase,” Halliday told STV.

“We’ve had many great Rangers teams in the past that have not managed to achieve that, so it’s a good incentive for us to go into the game and try and get a result.”

 

Halliday could feature in the Rugby Park clash as Gerrard going into the game missing a number of first-team players.

The former Bradford ace had earned a regular place in the starting XI before his red card against Celtic saw him banned for one game and lose his place to Jon Flanagan.

Hopefully, Gerrard’s side can cope with a number of absentees and end the season on a high and set a club record that has incredibly eluded some truly fantastic Rangers sides.
