Docherty to Shrewsbury 1 year Loan - done deal. Hope he does well down there and comes back the better for it.

I'm surprised that he hasn't been able to convince SG that he can play a part this season, but somehow Halliday has managed it. Good luck to him.

{Ed039's Note - it came out quite early that SG was impressed with Halliday)

Not sure you can compare Docherty to Halliday. Docherty needs regular first team football to continue his development, halliday is a seasoned pro who can fill in when injuries dictate, and also play several positions.

Halliday doesn't half get some stick from the supporters, and it's completely unjust. He's a good squad player who can come in and do a job in a few positions. He's got a great attitude and isn't afraid of a tackle. He also loves the club. SG clearly has this opinion also so wouldn't it be great if people got off his case and backed him when he plays.

As for Docherty, yeah he's got far more talent and potential than Halliday. That's why he's being allowed to go on loan and carry on learning by playing first team football. Two players at different stages in their careers with different things to offer. Good luck to both.

Good post gooner and a lot of sense unlike those halliday bashers that don't see the big picture.

What's the big picture halliday might love the club and can in theory play a number of positions but he isn't good enough in any of the positions and the sooner he leaves the quicker we can move on to a better quality team.

Just because you love the club and like a tackle doesn’t mean you should be playing for rangers. Halliday’s second touch usually is a tackle! He gets stick because he simply isn’t good enough. I’d much rather have a younger player coming through than Halliday who hasn’t shown anything since being in the top flight that suggests he's cut out for it.

End of day SG rates Halliday, nearly twenty players out since start of last season, well done mark Allen, I include players we had on loan that so many want us to sign.

Halliday is happy to be a bit part player and sit on the bench mostly to be a squad player- Docherty isn’t, he wants to play and develop that’s the difference! These two players can’t be compared.

Geocaching they can be compared, u r right re Halliday, but he can provide cover on occasion
Docherty will be the better player for loan.

I’m not so sure Stevie does rate Halliday tbh basically Wallace and Johns have been injured all season and he uses Halliday as a back up left back.
The fact he is a Bluenose won’t do him any harm either as Stevie G knows the value of having that type of influence in the changing room so it is win win keeping him at this stage. Personally I think he will go to Livingston or Dundee sort of level on loan or kept as back up at v best now Johns is returning to fitness to challenge our new signing Barisic for LB role.
I’m not surprised Docherty was allowed to go and develop further especially if we allowed Holt to go who is more consistent.

Jboy21, I never said Docherty wouldn’t be a better player for the loan- I’m hoping majorly that he is! My point is just that- we need to let Doc go on loan because he won’t get the game time he needs with us, he’s young, enthusiasticac and wants to play every game- SG can’t keep him happy sitting on a bench as a squad player! Halliday on the other hand has been for a few seasons now a squad player happy to play a bit part- this is the reason the 2 players can’t be compared! Doc wants to progress and Halliday is content being part of the squad.

Guys, Haliday is a decent squad member, versatile, a true blue local lad that will prove an excellent help to all the new players and staff
Trust in Stevie G 👍💙⚽♥️.
