Rangers midfielder to be bombed out by Caixinha this summer - report
By Alex Stevens
Rangers are set to offload midfield flop Michael O’Halloran this summer, according to a report.
The Daily Record claim the Scottish giants are keen to find a buyer for the 26-year-old winger after he fell foul of Pedro Caixinha earlier this month.
It is said that O’Halloran came close to leaving Rangers on loan in January and “will almost certainly leave this time” following a recent disciplinary indiscretion.
The Celtic academy product, who was signed by former Ibrox manager Mark Warburton, got into hot water with Caixinha when he failed to turn up for an Under-20 match two weeks ago.
The Daily Record report that it is more likely that O’Halloran will leave on loan rather than permanently given that he has three years remaining on his Rangers contract.

O’Halloran has struggled to make an impact at the Light Blues since joining from St Johnstone for £500,000 in January 2016.
He has made just six league starts this season, featuring in only one of Caixinha’s six games in charge of the team when he played the second half of the 1-1 draw against Motherwell in an unfamiliar wing-back position due to a spate of injuries.
O’Halloran was linked with moves to Hearts, Motherwell, Ross County and St Johnstone during the recent winter transfer window, although it remains to be seen whether either of the quartet will renew their interest in the coming months.
O’Halloran, who started off in the Celtic youth team set-up before spells at Bolton, Sheffield United, Carlisle, Tranmere and St Johnstone, is contracted to Rangers until the summer of 2020.
