Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is almost certain to spark a massive cull of the bloated squad he inherited – and striker Michael O’Halloran after the striker’s latest slap in the face to the Ibrox giants.
A picture widely shared on social media, as posted by BMC Rangers Rants, appears to show the 27-year-old at Hampden Park on Saturday, as Celtic wrapped up the Scottish Cup with a 2-0 win to secure a historic double treble a little over a year after failing to bother attending an Under-20s game he was scheduled to start in.
Ladies & Gentlemen. Yesterday look where our very own Michael O’Halloran was. We really never should have signed this boy. pic.twitter.com/Ga5qijLkmp

After signing from St. Johnstone in 2016, O’Halloran has been little more than a fringe player at Ibrox and did not look like he had any future after only managing one appearance in the season just ended – and his latest decision is not going to endear him to anyone at Ibrox with a slap in the face to his club.
While there is some debate over whether the picture actually shows the Gers outcast, if it does then it’s a decision that is absolutely baffling from a senior pro.
If O’Halloran did attend the final then that itself is not really a problem but doing so and sitting amongst Celtic fans is either crass stupidity or someone who wants to get himself into trouble with supporters.
Either way, O’Halloran’s time at Ibrox is up and the former St. Johnstone star must be one of the first out the door this summer.
In other Rangers transfer news, the club are in hot pursuit of a 6’4″ colossus who could be signing of the season.
