Pedro Caixinha has slammed Rangers winger Michael O’Halloran as he made it clear the player has no future at the club while he is manager.
O’Halloran, 26, is on a season-long loan at St Johnstone and has made a big early impact with four goals in four matches.
But Caixinha made it clear during his media conference this afternoon (Friday) that he is not a fan of the attacker.
“He is not my type of player,” Caixinha said, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account. “He is not the type of player Rangers need.”
PC on O’Halloran: He is not my type of player. He is not the type of player Rangers need.

O’Halloran joined Rangers from St Johnstone 18 months ago for £500,000 after 16 goals in 90 appearances.
He struggled to make an impact at Ibrox and was forced to train with the youth team shortly after Caixinha’s arrival at the club.
Nearly half of O’Halloran’s 37 outings for Rangers came off the bench, he only found the net three times and fell out of favour after Caixinha took over in March.
However, his second spell at St Johnstone has begun brightly and he would have scored a hat-trick in the club’s second Scottish Premiership match of the season had a late penalty not been saved.
Rangers, who travel to Ross County on Sunday, are five points behind St Johnstone, who have won all three of their league fixtures in the new campaign.
