Halford, known as a bit of a 'sort' in footballing circles, almost joined the Super Whites on Deadline Day, although Fulham's decision not to sign Jermaine Beckford meant Wanderers were unable to sign the 29 year old Chelmsford-born player.
Somewhat of a football nomad - partially due to his ability to rub people up the wrong way - Halford began his career at Colchester United before ending up at Nottingham Forest following spells with no fewer than seven clubs throughout the league pyramid.
Originally a midfielder, then converted to a defender, but sometimes deployed as a striker, Halford is known to Bolton fans as 'that bell-end who smacked the ball into the fan's face' following a game at the Reebok in 2011.
To conclude, I did like this post from a Forest forum:
He'd fit in perfectly with them.
I kind of admire the blatant cheating he is regularly involved with plus he'd be perfect for their brand of kick and rush football.
