The departure of forward Michael O’Halloran to St. Johnstone on loan has proven to divide opinion among the Rangers fan base.

O’Halloran’s exit marked the seventh player to leave Rangers either permanently or on loan this summer with the likes of Clint Hill, Matt Crooks and Andy Halliday also departing as Pedro Caixinha looks to overhaul his squad.
However, despite playing in just 16 Premiership matches in the last campaign which the Gers largely struggled in some fans were saddened to see O’Halloran leave.
Some claimed he never got a proper chance at the club, but on the other side others stated he was a “waste of cash.”
Meanwhile, some speculated whether his departure was to clear the way for reported target Jamie Walker.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
😢 That lad never got a proper chance with us.

God awful player, most predictable player I've ever seen. Also a Tim Which doesn't help.

Sad thing is we will still be paying most of his wages no doubt. Total waste of cash by Warburton

O’Halloran cost Ranges a pricey £500,000 in February 2016 as he completed a move from St. Johnstone.
However, since joining he has returned just three goals and six assists in 37 matches in total for the Gers.
The winger still has three years remaining on his contract at Rangers and he will be looking to impress at St. Johnstone once more in the Premiership.
In other Rangers news, Kevin Thomson believes this 2016 summer signing is as good as any Gers player in the squad.
