Seems like MOH thought he might be on the way out after speaking to some of his mates at St Johnstone who had heard chat about him coming back but apparently coaching staff at Rangers have confirmed to him that he's staying.

That is one bit of good news! Could we please offload Halliday!
2.) 10 Jan 2017 16:10:32
So you would rather have Ohalloran at Rangers than Halliday? Ohalloran brings more to the team does he Mr USA?

Rick I would rather have Celtic players playing with us than Halliday worst player I have ever seen in a rangers jersey that's played in the top league

Do you have Kieran blindness, GANNET10?
5.) 10 Jan 2017 19:33:08
Im not a fan of Halliday but that's abit much Gannet as i can think of dozens of players that were worse
6.) 10 Jan 2017 19:34:40
He is a terrible terrible player but because he is a fan that's ok with some fans.
We need to get rid asap

For a start Rick Witter they both play different positions so no comparison in that respect. Now to the players themselves. If I take off the Blue tinted specs that shows me that any 'Rangers man' must always be in the team and look at reality I see the following. Halliday is not a Holding Midfielder. Halliday is not a defensive midfield player. Halliday is slow. Halliday has two passing styles, sideways and backwards. The vast majority of his passes are short, consequently putting his fellow player in a bad position. He affords little cover to his defence, he does not track back as quickly as he should, he lacks guile, his reading of the game is not what it should be. He was good in the Championship, he continues to live on one game against Celtic last season that we won, (possibly the worst result possible in reality since it give us and by the looks of it, too many people at Rangers, an inflated opinion of the team's ability to compete in the Premiership.
I believe O'Halloran deserves more game time before a decision is made as to whether he is good enough, I have the same view of Crooks. I have seen enough of Halliday to form the opinion that he is not good enough to take us forward.

He's not a holding midfielder, I think we all know that. he's done a decent enough job overall though but I think he should have had a spell on the bench because hasn't been performing the last couple of months regardless of the fact he isn't playing in his proper position there's no excuse in my opinion for some poor performances but he's not a bad player. Michael ohalloran however just never shows enough, runs into dead ends too often and technically poor and is easily marked out of games. As for the team not competing in the premier league, what are you talking about? It doesn't matter how poor Scottish football is at the moment which it is, it's just the way it is but we're more than capable of holding our own in that league, it's just going to take longer to start competing with Celtic again Mr USA.

MOT apparently on his way to St Johnstone and Rangers seemingly have a few instalments left to pay St Johnstone for his transfer to us in the first place so could be going for next to nothing. Would have liked to have seen more of him if he is on his way out.

I still don't understand how we agreed to pay 500k for him in the 1st place, although it's a shame he hasn't really had a proper chance to prove himself but from what I personally have seen of him he doesn't fit into this system that we are trying to play
3.) 07 Jan 2017 14:25:08
JU, . Remember that when he is running at our defence in the new year!
4.) 07 Jan 2017 15:20:30
I agree jack Union he does not fit to how we play we are always trying to break teams down and there is very little space and don't think that suits him tbh I think he is at his best when he has space to run into a good counter attacking team would suit him better look what he did to us couple years ago that was all on the break were he had loads of space to run into that's were he can hurt teams that's the sort of game for him. Saying that tho I would liked to of see more from him saying as we forked out £500,000 for him but I don't think he will be going anywere anyway.

We play Halliday because he is the only player we have who can play, admittedly very poorly, the defensive midfielder role. You need that link in a team between the defence and the midfield. It's not ideal but need to be practical.

Saw this reported on HITC. Haven't seen anything reported by them that has materialised or been proven true.
25 Jan 2017 13:54:17
Hopefully goes through. Would also welcome getting Senderos off the wage bill if possible.
20 Jan 2017 10:12:10
Anything over £5 million I think the board would bite their hand off. Disappointing as I do think he is both our best and most promising player at the moment.

He looks limited because he's restricted in what he's allowed to do. He thrived at St Johnstone where he was given freedom to play.

It's basic law that an agent (MW's agent for example) has authority to take such actions on behalf on their principal (MW) . I think the law will revolve around the agreement and whether or not the board accepted the initial agreement before MW's agent rescinded the offer. Usually, footballers'/ managers' agents aren't as well clued up on these things as club's lawyers and I think it looks like the board have played an absolute blinder.

Constantly torn between this exact viewpoint and the fear that accepting second best becomes habitual.
