ANDY HALLIDAY hopes Rangers can make the most of their home advantage when they face Kilmarnock in their Scottish Cup replay.

The Light Blues were held to a goalless draw at Rugby Park on Saturday night as they missed the chance to clinch their spot in the quarter-finals.

Captain James Tavernier spurned the Gers’ best opportunity of a tight encounter as he saw his first half penalty saved by Daniel Bachmann.

It was to prove a frustrating evening for boss Steven Gerrard as his side created few chances at the ground where they lost 2-1 on Premiership duty last month.

But Halliday is determined to finish the job second time around as Steve Clarke’s side get set to make the trip to Ibrox a week on Wednesday.

He told RangersTV: “I thought that the first half was scrappy affair and I don’t think that either team were very good to be honest, I don’t think there was many chances created.

“Second half, I thought that we were a lot better. We got the ball on the floor a lot better and we started to string some passes together.

“Some chances came from it and unfortunately we couldn’t take them away so it’s gone to a replay.

“The message was always at the start of the game that if we keep a clean sheet then we are still in the hat, however, we always wanted to win the game.

“We’ve played a lot of games this season, so another one to add to your schedule is not ideal.

“At the end of the day, we’re going for a trophy, so tiredness isn’t going to come into it. It wasn’t the best performance in the world but we are still in it.

“It’s back to Ibrox where we have own crowd advantage, so it’s not all doom and gloom.”
