Andy Halliday and Jason Holt look like becoming the first victims of the Gerrard Revolution.
According to a report in the Evening Times the midfield stars have been told that they have no part in Steven Gerrard’s plans.
Both players are under contract until 2020 and will need to be compensated to move on with no club prepared to match their Ibrox wages.
Halliday, who was brought up a true blue in Copland Road, joined Sevco as part of the Warburton Revolution in 2015 and was given a new improved contract in the summer of 2016.
No Celtic is brutal. So here’s an absolutely priceless photo. Poor Andy Halliday, he got terrorised by Forrest all game and the utter pish ripped out of him by us fans. One of my favourite photos from last season. pic.twitter.com/6MXAR7hCh7

Last summer Pedro Caixinha sent the midfielder on loan to Azerbaijan side Gabala but he was recalled by Graeme Murty in January.
Halliday’s relationship with Murty blew up spectacularly when he was substituted shortly before half-time as Celtic raced into a 2-0 lead in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden.
That decision was greeted by roars of approval from the Celtic support who sang Halliday’s name.
Two weeks later the 26-year-old was back in the side that lost 5-0 at Celtic Park where his name was sang regularly by delighted Celtic fans.
