NEIL LENNON could be set to make a move for Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday.

The Hibs boss is looking to rebuild his midfield for next season, with Scott Allan returning to Celtic after his loan spell and Dylan McGeouch out-of-contract.

Scotland star John McGinn is also attracting plenty of interest from a number of clubs keen to prise him away from Easter Road.

According to The Sun, 26-year-old Halliday is a target to help fill the potential void.

He played at left back for the last few games of the season, including the 5-5 draw at Easter Road, but has played in midfield for most of his career.

The former Middlesbrough star is under contract for another two years, but is expected to leave the club as new boss Steven Gerrard revamps the Rangers squad.

Halliday, who famously grew up next to Ibrox and has supported the club all his life, impressed in the Championship having been signed by Mark Warburton in the summer of 2016.

His versatility, passion and energy made him a hit with fans, but much of his later Rangers career has been marked with disappointment.

He fell out with Pedro Caixinha during the Portuguese’s spell in charge and was subsequently sent on a nightmare loan spell in Azerbaijan.

And after he was recalled by Graeme Murty, he was a bit-part player and suffered the humiliation of being hauled off before half-time in the 4-0 Scottish Cup demolition by Celtic.
