Andy Halliday: Settled on Teesside

The 21-year-old Scot was brought to The Riverside by former Boro boss Gordon Strachan in May 2010.

Although he played a number of games during his first season south of the border, he made just one appearance in 2011/12, when he also spent time on loan at Walsall.

However, the left-back is getting more opportunities this season and admits it has been a long haul for him in North Yorkshire.

The former Livingston player told The Northern Gazette: "It's been a long time in coming. I have been wanting to play football and I have started to get some games.

"I am really enjoying my football right now. These things, contract situations, take a lot of time, I don't think I have anything to worry about.

"There's no rush and it's the happiest I have been since I joined and it's the most I have enjoyed my football since I started here.

"I'm enjoying Teesside. I have settled in now down here and I'm not thinking about going anywhere."

Carroll accuses Rodgers

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

Rodgers: I wanted to keep Downing

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
