Rangers

By Harvey Byrne

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

The official Gers website and Twitter account confirmed that the 26-year-old right-winger had left Ibrox in a six-month loan deal on Saturday morning for their Premiership rivals.

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:

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.
