Rangers attacker poised for Ibrox exit with talks underway - report

Rangers attacker Michael O’Halloran could be set for a move to Australian side Melbourne City, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that the 27-year-old is set to leave Ibrox this summer after a frustrating two-year spell and could depart Ibrox to link up with former Wigan boss Warren Joyce across the other side of the world at Melbourne.

It is understood that talks are underway between the two clubs over a transfer and Melbourne will have to fork out cash given he still has two years left on his deal with the Gers.

Football Insider verdict:

It has never really quite happened for O’Halloran during his time with Rangers and it seems like he is unlikely to get a reprieve with new manager Steven Gerrard to fight for his future. The right-winger has brilliant pace and trickery, but his consistency let him down during his time at Ibrox and ultimately he hasn’t been able to cut the grade. He looks set for a completely new direction in Australia, as talks continue to try negotiate a deal to Melbourne. O’Halloran enjoyed a loan spell with former side St Johnstone in the first half of the 2017/18 season and proved his quality with a string of dazzling performances. The versatile attacker scored five goals in just his 16 league appearances for them, but then spent the second half of the campaign frozen out at Ibrox. It seems like Gerrard will be cutting off the deadwood following his arrival and it’s hard to envisage O’Halloran forcing his way into contention.
