Rangers fans are unsurprisingly looking forward to Steven Gerrard’s reign as Ibrox boss, which begins in earnest on Friday.

But there is some transfer news emerging which could also delight Gers fans.

The Scottish Sun is reporting that Motherwell and St Johnstone are hoping to end Michael O’Halloran’s spell at Ibrox.

The winger is unlikely to feature under Gerrard, as he has had such a poor time of it at Ibrox.

The 27-year-old was signed by former boss Mark Warburton from St Johnstone in 2016, but has failed to make the breakthrough at Ibrox and spent the second-half of last season on loan at his former club.

O’Halloran further upset fans of the Ibrox club after he sat amongst Celtic fans for the Scottish Cup Final v Motherwell, although he did apologise for that.

If the Gers are to challenge for the title under Gerrard, they need a better standard of player than O’Halloran, who seems to have been unable to make the step up from a midtable Scottish team to one of the biggest teams in Scotland.

Getting the player off the wage bill could also free up cash for signings that Gerrard wants to make, as he makes his own imprint on the Gers squad.

There could be a lot more comings and goings in and out of Ibrox in the summer, and O’Halloran is one player fans won’t shed any tears about leaving.
