Rangers attacker Michael O’Halloran “might need to move on” this summer, according to his agent Kenny Moyes, after failing to be given a chance during his two-and-a-half years at Ibrox – and confirmed that the striker almost joined Motherwell in January.
The Gers striker has angered fans after being spotted in the Celtic end at Saturday’s Scottish Cup final at Hampden and Moyes thinks the striker “hasn’t been given the opportunity” to prove what he can do for the Gers.
O’Halloran spent the first-half of the season on loan at St. Johnstone and his agent admitted that he hoped it wouldn’t be the end of his Ibrox career.
“Michael hasn’t been given the opportunity to go and play at Rangers,” Moyes said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“I hope this isn’t the end of his career at Ibrox but he might need to move on.
“They don’t know how good he can be because he’s not had a chance.
“He’s still got two years left on his contract and Motherwell were probably the closest to signing him earlier in the season but Rangers wanted him back in January.”
Football Insider verdict:
O’Halloran has been on borrowed time at Ibrox since failing to show up for an Under-20s game last year and the biggest surprise is that he’s still on the wage bill at Ibrox. With Steven Gerrard’s arrival as manager next month there will almost certainly be a huge overhaul of the playing squad at Ibrox and O’Halloran’s name should be at the top of the list of those for the chop. His whole time at Ibrox has been a disappointment and O’Halloran’s signing should be a warning against signing a player on the strength of a good performance against your side and watching YouTube videos. Despite having another two years left on his deal, if Rangers can’t get someone one to take him off their hands then terminating his contract wouldn’t be a loss to anyone. Either way, it’ll be a miracle if he is still a Rangers player when the transfer window closes at the end of August.
