Rangers outcast who could be 'potent weapon' looking forward to Murty talks
Michael O’Halloran has revealed that he’s relishing being back at Rangers after a six-month loan to fellow Premiership side St Johnstone.
Talking to RangersTV from the Florida camp, O’Halloran also thinks that he’s proved he’s worth of a run in the Rangers first team and is looking forward to clear-the-air talks with manager Graeme Murty.
The winger scored five goals in his first six games at St Johnstone and can’t wait to start scoring for his parent club.
“For me at the time, I had to go out and get games because I wasn’t playing here. I knew that I was going somewhere where I was going to play and that I felt comfortable,” O’Halloran said.
“Obviously he’s (Graeme Murty) welcomed me back which is nice, but I’d imagine at some point he will sit down with me to speak and tell me what his plans are and where he maybe sees me playing, which is good.
“I’m looking forward to getting that chat with him.
“So hopefully this time I can come and work hard and show the manager what I can do and get into the team and play as regularly as I can.”
Former Rangers striker Derek Johnstone believes that the returning outcast can deliver for Rangers.
Talking to the Evening Times he said: “O’Halloran has never managed to hold down a first team place at Rangers for long. But his pace could be a potent weapon if it is harnessed properly.”
O’Halloran was signed by Mark Warburton in 2016 but has never had a run in the team and, after falling out with Pedro Caixinha, and no-showing an Under-20s game it looked like his Rangers career was over.
Now he looks set to get an unlikely second chance to prove himself at Ibrox.
