Rangers flop Michael O’Halloran will return to Ibrox next season – wearing the colours of St. Johnstone.
In the most predictable transfer in Scottish football for years, O’Halloran is back in Perth. Rangers and Mark Warburton splashed close to half a million pounds on the winger back in January 2016.
This was largely because of a League Cup performance at Ibrox earlier that season. O’Halloran lead the St. Johnstone line to devastating effect, scoring one and ripping Rangers apart.
But he did eventually cross the line at Ibrox.
O’Halloran rubbed Rangers noses in it
There were sounds that the winger was to be shipped out of Govan at the end of last season. Sounds that became deafening drums when he showed up to Hampden to cheer on his beloved Celtic to Scottish Cup victory last May.
He was shunted out to Melbourne where his ordinary football ability was shown up. The Australian A-League is no joke, but it’s hardly as intense as some leagues back in Europe.
He was released by Melbourne City at the beginning of this month.
That said, he might turn in the kind of performance which charmed Warburton into buying him.
The Rangers flop was always the type to up his game against his biggest rivals…
In more positive transfer news, Rangers look to have offered a deal to an American utility man on trial at the club.
