Rangers signed Michael O’Halloran on deadline day.

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright has suggested to the Scottish Sun that Michael O’Halloran has the maturity to deal with playing for Rangers, having linked up with the Gers on deadline day.

Wright said: “Michael’s a Glasgow boy so he'll be aware of the huge pressure put on Old Firm players. He is 25 so he's mature enough to deal with that, and I think he will. I'm delighted for him, Rangers have got an exciting player and we'll move on.”

O’Halloran linked up with the Gers on deadline day, with a long-running transfer saga finally ending after a month of talks.

St Johnstone were against selling their star attacker, but Rangers eventually got their man, and he made his debut as a second half substitute against Raith Rovers on Tuesday evening.

He did little of note, but that was not a surprise with just one days worth of training at Murray Park to his name.

He will grow into the Rangers team over time, and the attacker has proven in the Premiership that he has the talent to be a success.

Wright also believes that O’Halloran has the maturity needed to be a success at Ibrox, in the high pressure role that playing for Rangers puts you.

Mark Warburton clearly rates the forward, and it is hard to imagine that he will not become a success for Rangers over the coming months and years.
