St Johnstone sells forward Michael O’Halloran to Scottish League’s Rangers on and undisclosed fee for four and a half years. Bids were also made earlier but they were rejected.
Rangers Football Club announced that O’Halloran will go straight into tomorrow night’s championship clash against Raith Rovers.
The 25-year old has played for Bolton Wanderers and has been on loan at Sheffield United, Carlisle United and Tranmere Rovers before moving north to McDiarmid Park where he made a total of 89 appearances and scored 16 goals.
Michael O’Halloran reflected on the move:
“This is a massive step-up for me, everybody knows about Glasgow Rangers and how big a football club they are.”
“I spoke to the manager and it’s just the right thing for me, it’s the right fit and I’m just looking forward to getting started now.
“I first heard about Rangers being interested at the beginning of January and I was told there was a chance that I might be moving.
“As soon as I heard that I wanted to go on and join the big club and I am delighted to be here.
“There was no doubt in my mind about coming; it’s an opportunity you have to grasp with both hands.”
“I played at Ibrox earlier in the season and the crowd were amazing, the whole atmosphere was great, the pitch was and the way the manager has them playing too.
“I am happy it is finally over the line because it has been a long time; I’ve not known whether I am coming or going over the last month but I am delighted to be here now.
“You hear a lot of speculation but I’ve just tried to concentrate on playing football.
