Player/pundit Halliday was hooked off by Robbie Neilson after 45 minutes of Celtic’ Premier Sports Cup victory over Hearts.

Over the last year the former Bradford utility man has thrown himself all-in to a career in the media, cultivating the image of being a decent guy and one of the lads.

When it comes to playing against Celtic he has a few painful memories that he can call on. In 2018 he had a rant at Graeme Murty when he substituted at Hampden in a 4-0 rout, a few weeks later he was being serenaded as Celtic won 5-0 to clinch the title in style.

A fortnight ago the 29-year-old enjoyed a measure of revenge when Hearts beat Celtic in the SPFL opener but the game wasn’t without controversy with his podcast buddy allowing a brutal attack on Callum McGregor’ heel to go unpunished.

Halliday never got a look in today. Celtic enjoyed 82% possession with Hearts chasing shadows, their media star barely got on the ball to be booed by Celtic fans but on Twitter he was an easy target.
