Former Hibernian striker Tam McManus has urged Rangers to get rid of attacker Michael O’Holloran if reports that he failed to turn up for an Under-20s match are true.
Gers news site GotTheBattleFeverOn claimed on Tuesday that the 26-year-old could be set for the exit door after refusing to play for the club’s youth team.
It is stated that the fringe first team player was scheduled to start in the fixture against Hearts at Forthbank, but he failed to turn up for the encounter without explanation.
He has since come in for a lot of criticism and former Scotland Under-21 international McManus shared on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday that if the report is true then Rangers should pay his contract up and get rid of him for his attitude.
O’Halloran was signed by Rangers in February 2016 for a fee of £500,000 after starring for St. Johnstone.
The Glasgow-born player has so far struggled to recapture his form at the Gers and in 37 appearances for the club he has returned just three goals and six assists.
He has played just 56 minutes for the club in 2017, but with three years still left on his current contract it may prove too costly to pay him off.
