Glasgow Rangers fans have hammered Ewan Murray after comments he made on Twitter about former Gers player Andy Halliday.
Halliday left Ibrox during the summer as a free agent, but he remains popular amongst the club’s supporters. After all, he is a massive fan of the Gers, and it is clear that the 54-time Scottish champions mean so much to the 29-year-old.
He now plays for Hearts, but he is becoming more and more of a well-known figure in the punditry world. For example, he regularly features on the Open Goal podcast. This has not gone down well with journalist Ewan Murray, a Hearts fan, who believes Halliday should be concentrating on his football rather than talking on other matters in Scottish football – especially the Old Firm.
Are you a fan of Ewan Murray?
While he may not play for them anymore, the Gers fans still leapt to Halliday’s defence, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Also no comment on the newspaper just taking comments made on a public podcast and passing it off as news? Lazy journalism. Why not tell us what happened on coronation street last night too?

So when players are asked to be on Sky Sports for example they are only allowed to talk about their own club? If you had bothered listening to it, he is clearly hurting an embarrassed at the Alloa defeat

Plenty of players still involved in the game are asked for opinions and do punditry work. Weird that you pick out a Rangers player to have a go at.
