Recently released Rangers midfielder, Andy Halliday, is the latest of a blue persuasion to try to convince himself and others that Celtic’s Premiership title and 9-in-a-row achievement is anything less than deserved.
“#CelticFC were the favourites.” ☘️
“But if you can’t finish the season, I’m unsure how you can award a title?” 🤷♂️
“There’s definitrly a asterisk over it.”
Ex #RangersFC man Andy Halliday says Celtic’s title should have an asterisk.

Speaking to Talksport, Halliday claimed that because the season hadn’t been played to a finish, it was impossible to award the title to anyone:
Love the pain of a failed player crying over losing yet another league title. All this asterisk talk makes it much sweeter 😘

Only asterisk here is the one next to you being a ‘footballer’

Halliday may be “staunch” but his five years at Ibrox achieved little more than derision and amusement for opposition fans – he will be missed more by them than by those of his own club.
