Michael O'Halloran clarifies his future amid Rangers, Celtic interest

Celtic Park

Rangers and Celtic are reportedly keen on signing St Johnstone’s O’Halloran.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Michael O’Halloran clarified his future amid reported transfer interest from both Rangers and Celtic.

When asked about potentially leaving St Johnstone in January, O’Halloran said: “I’m enjoying my time here. We’re doing well in the league and have a cup semi to look forward to. If there is a chance to get into a cup final why wouldn’t you want to stay here and play?”

The Scotsman reported back in October that O’Halloran was a target for Rangers, whilst the Record claimed this week that Celtic are looking at bringing their former youth player back to Parkhead.

The winger has been in great form for St Johnstone this season, scoring two goals and creating eight more in 15 appearances.

He is still only 24-years-old, and if Celtic could bring him in it would be another sign that they are stockpiling the best Scottish talent around.

If Rangers could complete the signing of O’Halloran, it would be a real coup considering they are in the division below St Johnstone, and his arrival in January would likely secure the Gers’ promotion back to the Premiership.

However, O’Halloran has admitted that there is no reason for him to leave St Johnstone whilst the club are performing so well in the league, and it appears as if the winger will be remaining with his current team until at least the summer transfer window.
