Melbourne City have wrapped up the signing of Rangers striker Michael O’Halloran on a two-year deal – and Gers fans are delighted to see the 27-year-old leave.

O’Halloran is the latest player to leave Ibrox this summer after a shambolic two-and-a-half years with the Light Blues and will link up with Warren Joyce’s A-League team.

The news was announced on the Melbourne City Twitter account:

The former Bolton youngster joined the Light Blues from St. Johnstone for £450,000 in 2016 but barely featured under Mark Warburton, Pedro Caixinha or Graeme Murty despite the Gers struggles on the field.

Gers fans were glad to see O’Halloran leave Ibrox as Steven Gerrard shapes his squad – with one fan saying it was a “great day.”

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The striker struggled to force his way into the side under Warburton before no-showing an Under-20s game just weeks after Caixinha replaced him in the hotseat started the end of O’Halloran’s Ibrox career.

The striker was then sent out on loan to St. Johnstone at the start of last season but returned to Ibrox in January – again causing headlines when he was spotted in the Celtic end at May’s Scottish Cup final at Hampden.

O’Halloran’s contract at Ibrox was due to run until the summer of 2020 and there’s no word if any fee was involved.
