Rangers have completed the signing of St Johnstone striker Michael O’Halloran for an undisclosed fee. The 25 year old has signed a four and a half year deal with the Ibrox club until July 2020.
Speculation over O’Halloran’s future at St Johnstone became apparent after he was left out of the team that faced Hamilton on the 16th of January which manager Tommy Wright put down to him not being “mentally ready”. The signing of Michael O’Halloran had been a priority for Rangers during the transfer window and the Ibrox club previously had two bids turned down for the striker.
The Rangers manager Mark Warburton has confirmed that O’Halloran will be on the team sheet for tomorrow’s Scottish Championship match against Raith Rovers at Stark’s Park. Its also understood that Rangers see O’Halloran as a key player for the future as the Gers make their final push for promotion back to the Scottish Premiership after a four year absence.
Michael O’Halloran began his youth career at Celtic before moving south of the border to join Bolton Wanderers where he made his senior debut. After failing to break into the Trotters first team he signed for St Johnstone in 2013.
