Tony Mowbray: Happy with Andy Halliday

Halliday joined Boro in 2010 from Livingston as a winger, but he has since been moved into a more defensive role.

The 21-year-old started Boro's 3-0 win over Huddersfield and he earned praise from Mowbray who has decided to convert him.

"I never had any doubts about Andy Halliday. I was not sure he was going anywhere as an attacking player but I felt he could play left-back," said Mowbray.

"I thought it was a big ask to play him against Albert Adomah at the weekend but this was an opportunity for him to show us what he could do."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
