Pacy former Rangers winger lined up for potential Premiership transfer

Jim Goodwin has confirmed St Mirren’s transfer interest in former Rangers winger Michael O’Halloran.

O’Halloran is currently at St Johnstone but is out of contract in the summer and will be on the lookout for a new club.

He’s had a disappointing season with the Perth side, scoring just two goals and notching four assists from 29 appearances in all competitions.

Yet, the 30-year-old may still be given the option to remain in the Premiership next season.

The Scottish Sun reported earlier this week that St Mirren were considering a move for the former Gers attacker and Goodwin confirmed his interest on Thursday afternoon.

“Michael is a player I have always liked,” the Buddies boss told reporters. “He has plenty of great attributes, his pace, his power, he’s played at a really good level.”

“He’s on the list but I have a list with 50 or 60 players on it. Michael is a player we’ve spoken about but there hasn’t been anything concrete put to him yet.”

The Gers signed O’Halloran from St Johnstone for a fee in the region of £500,000 in 2016 [Scottish Sun] and handed him a bumper four-and-a-half-year contract.

However, he didn’t manage to live up to expectations and left for Melbourne City in 2018 having contributed just three goals and six assists from 38 appearances.

As Goodwin mentioned, O’Halloran has all the attributes to be a big hit at Premiership level, and perhaps a move to Paisley in the summer would help him rediscover his best form.

In other news, a key Rangers player has stated that it would be a ‘dream’ for him to finish his career at Ibrox.
