Rangers 27-year-old attacker set for Ibrox exit within days - report

Rangers winger Michael O’Halloran is set to leave Rangers within the next 48 hours, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that the 27-year-old is set to move to the Australian side Melbourne City.

The report goes on to state that although St Johnstone and Motherwell were interested in buying the player, he has decided to make the move to Australia.

O’Halloran has rarely featured for the Gers since joining the Ibrox side from St Johnstone in 2016, and he spent the first-half of last season on-loan at the Perth side.

Football Insider verdict

It is not a surprise that Michael O’Halloran’s time at Ibrox is set to come to an end. His tenure at the club has been a big disappointment, as he failed to take the chances he was given by the man who signed him, Mark Warburton. It was always going to be a gamble, signing a player who had done well with a small team – St Johnstone – before moving to Ibrox, and it just hasn’t worked out for the player. With Mark Allen and Steven Gerrard wanting to bring their own players in, it seemed inevitable that O’Halloran was going to be sold as soon as a bidder was found for him. As he is still only 27-years-old, O’Halloran could still have a future in the game, but it was never going to be at Ibrox, and fans will back the move to get a player who was not going to feature in the first-team off the wage bill. It will be interesting to see if more fringe players follow O’Halloran out the door at Ibrox in the weeks to come.
