Rangers transfer news: Steve Brown confirms no third bid for Michael O’Halloran

Rangers are hoping to sign Michael O’Halloran of St Johnstone.

Speaking to STV, St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown has shared his thoughts on Rangers trying to sign Michael O’Halloran, with the Gers already submitting two bids for the striker.

Brown said: “At the end of the day we’ve not actively put Michael on the market, we’ve always said he’s not for sale. If any offers come in we’ll consider it and if it’s not at a level that’s acceptable to us then we won’t accept it. We’d like to keep him but that really depends on if we get further bids.”

Brown has confirmed that he has still not received any further bids from Rangers for the attacker, and is waiting to see if Mark Warburton makes another approach.

He has claimed that O’Halloran is not actively up for sale, but St Johnstone will review every offer put forward to them, and will act upon the size of the fee.

If it does not match their valuation, they have no problem with rejecting such a bid, whilst, conversely, they will accept a bid if it respectable.

The Courier reported at the weekend that a third bid from Rangers was expected this week, with Rangers hoping to push the deal for O’Halloran over the line.

Warburton views O’Halloran as a priority transfer target, and the player who can ensure Rangers win promotion, but this third bid has not yet been submitted.

There is no indication from Brown as to when he expects the third bid to be submitted by Rangers.
