Michael O'Halloran explains what Warburton told him before completing Rangers move

Rangers FC Stands

Michael O'Halloran has joined Rangers from St. Johnstone.

New Rangers signing Michael O'Halloran has told the Daily Mail that manager Mark Warburton spoke about his desire to sign him - and also revealed to the club's official YouTube channel that Warburton explained his tactical plans before sealing the deal.

After a long, drawn out transfer saga, Rangers finally got their man on deadline day, as forward O'Halloran made his move to Ibrox.

O'Halloran, 25, started his career with Rangers' Old Firm rivals Celtic, before moving to England with Bolton Wanderers, but a lack of opportunities with the Trotters led to a return to Scotland with St. Johnstone in 2014.

With ten goals last season, O'Halloran impressed, and he has added another four goals to his name this term, with Rangers snapping him up on deadline day despite being in the Scottish Championship.

The pacey forward is now seen as the man to fire Rangers to promotion, and he has been speaking about his last-gasp move to Ibrox.

O'Halloran explained to the Daily Mail and the club's YouTube channel just what manager Mark Warburton told him before completing the deal, admitting that they talked about the heavy interest and the Gers' attacking tactics before signing on the dotted line on Monday evening.

"The manager here (Mark Warburton) told me how keen he was to get me," said O'Halloran. "He just spoke to me about how the boys play and his ideas and style of play. As you see, it's what, 60-70% possession they have in games? That suits me, it's an attacking style and that's all I want to do; get the ball and go forward and attack, so it suits me."
