Rangers' Halliday takes nothing about Raith for granted

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday is well aware of Raith's impressive home record ahead of their trip to Stark's Park. Rovers won seven home games in succession at the start of the season, although they have recently suffered narrow defeats to Hibernian and Falkirk.

Halliday said: "It will be a difficult place to go, although I've never played there myself. They have earned a lot of good points at home and ran Hibs really close there a few weeks ago.

"It's just a case of going and doing what we've been trying to do and picking up the three points."

Halliday scored a late penalty in his side's 4-0 victory over Dumbarton on Tuesday, which sent them three points clear of Hibs at the top of the Ladbrokes Championship.

"That's two wins in a row we've had now, so we need to try and get that momentum we had at the start of the season that saw us win so many games on the bounce," Halliday said.

"I'm just enjoying playing for Rangers Football Club, and that's what it's all about for me. I'm privileged to play for this club and to have played so many minutes.

"The better we play and the more wins we get, the happier I am.

"It's been going pretty well so far, although we had a couple of disappointing results recently, and maybe I have not been at my best myself which is always disappointing, but thankfully I found a bit of form and we have done well in these last two games."
