Hearts completed the signing of Andy Halliday on Monday afternoon after agreeing a two-year deal with the former Rangers player.

Here is what the club’s supporters had to say on the their latest transfer after we asked them for their input on social media.

Lynn Aoki: “He's got a bit of bite about him. The type of player we are needing in that midfield. Think he will do well. Still only 28, so should be at his peak.”

Cameron Conafray: “Should be solid enough. You don't play 150 games for one of the old firm for nothing.”

Jamie Dow: “Decent signing imo. He's a leader just like Naismith he'll take no nonsense from anyone. Hope he does well for us.”

Shaun Burnett: “Brilliant signing. Nasty edge. Good experience. And a problem position DMF. And only 28. Welcome Andy.”

Steven Blackford: “Reminds me of Ian Black... gives 100% every game and is a ball winner in the midfield... is a bit hot headed but we loved that about Black.”

Brian Chapman: “He’s hated by other fans, wears his heart on his sleeve. Gives you a bit of dig in midfield! I reckon he’ll be a good addition...”

Andrew Payne: “Can’t wait to see him play. Will take the pressure of Haring returning too quickly, and will allow Walker to venture further forward. He gives 100%, and never heard a bad word about him.”

Mike Wilson: "Delighted. What is not to like unless you are that small minded you can't see past who he last played for. Will add much needed bite to the team which will be essential when we need to kick and fight our way to winning games at some grounds.”

Tommy Fyall: Solid signing. Would hate for it to be at expense of Irving. But good cover for lb too as think White will regularly be injured.”

Colin Gallacher: “Where does it leave Cochrane?”

Mikey Mcleod: “We have better younger players in that area we didn’t need him.”

Alan Nelson: “Don't rate him! Think he brings more problems than solutions.”

Steven Patrick McNamara: “Think he's abysmal.”
