Rangers midfielder Michael O’Halloran is due to leave the club within the next 48 hours according to The Scottish Sun.

The report declares that the 27-year-old outcast is set to join Melbourne City, despite the fact that he still has another two years left remaining on his deal at Ibrox.

O’Halloran signed for the Light Blues from St Johnstone back in 2016 for a fee of £500,000 but has never really got going at the Scottish giants.

The versatile winger started the season in sublime form scoring five goals in his first six games before a knee injury halted his progress and from that point onwards he struggled to get back into the team.

O’Halloran also reportedly attracted interest from Motherwell and a return to St Johnstone was also touted but it is said that he has now made his decision and a surprise move to Melbourne is his destination.

OPINION:

It is a pity that O’Halloran’s career at Rangers has never really got going. There were real signs at the beginning of the last campaign that the attacker was going to make a name for himself in the starting XI, but the injury ended those hopes as he was gifted only minutes of action here and there following his come back from that knee problem. At 27, it is likely that the attacker will be wanting more minutes but with Josh Windass ahead of him on the right of the park and more signings likely to arrive at Ibrox in the coming weeks, the former St Johnstone ace’s chances of breaking back into the side are small to none so it makes sense for him to leave now. The Gers faithful will most probably shrug their shoulders once the midfielder officially exits after making little impact on them – besides the club are looking at bigger and better prospects at the moment in what is an exciting period for the club.
