Rangers transfer news: Tommy Wright gives further Michael O’Halloran transfer update

Rangers are hoping to sign Michael O’Halloran before the end of the transfer window.

Rangers have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Michael O’Halloran, with St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright confirming to the Daily Record that no new approaches have been made for the striker, and that he is set to feature for the side this weekend.

When asked for an update on O’Halloran, Wright said: “I haven’t spoken to the chairman since Tuesday night and then there was no change in the situation. The way things are at the minute, nothing’s happening. He’s [O’Halloran] been good in training on Monday and Tuesday so he’ll be in the squad on Saturday. There’s nothing more to report on it."

O’Halloran has been in training this week despite the rumours about his future, with the Daily Record confirming that Rangers have submitted two bids for his services.

They are set to make a third offer, but Wright has confirmed that no bid has yet been put forward, and that the 25-year-old attacker will feature this weekend, with St Johnstone set to take on Celtic at Parkhead on Saturday.

This means that no deal will take place before the end of this week, and Rangers will head into the weekend with their current selection of players in Mark Warburton’s first-team squad.

With no deal set to wrap up this week, Rangers will enter the last week of the transfer window hoping to push through the deal for O’Halloran.
