Rangers fans slaughter ex-Ibrox player for disgraceful "leg-breaker"

As Rangers dumped St. Johnstone 3-0 in Perth a wonderful, fluid performance for the Gers was interrupted by one stand out moment from an ex-Ibrox player.

Michael O’Halloran won’t be exactly the most popular player on the former Ibrox star circuit upon retirement, something solidified by his six minutes of madness at McDiarmid Park.

The pacey winger had a torrid time at Ibrox – largely through woeful form – and was sent packing courtesy of two yellow cards less than ten minutes from his introduction.

The winger tripped Alfredo Morelos to pick up his first yellow before flying into Gers full-back Borna Barisic with malicious intent to receive his second.

His immature introduction to the match was also caveated with his salty exit from Ibrox, coming after the childhood Celtic fan visited Hampden to watch Celtic win the Scottish Cup in 2018, whilst still a Rangers player.

That’s a slap in the face to every single Rangers fan on planet Earth and utterly unforgivable, with O’Halloran once again crossing the line to try and inflict damage on Barisic.

The player risked the ire of Gers boss Gerrard as he trudged off the field and was branded untrustworthy by Saints boss Callum Davidson [Scottish Sun].

He’ll go down as a joke figure amongst the Ibrox support and the club’s fans railed against the 29-year-old man-child on Twitter in the aftermath of the match:

Rangers signed O’Halloran for a fee of £500k back in 2016 but in three years at the club managed only three goals in 38 appearances.

Rangers impressed in the midweek tie in Perth as the club stretched their winning league run to 11 games to stretch out a 16-point lead at the top of the table.
