Michael O'Halloran made his Rangers debut against Raith Rovers on Tuesday.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Herald that there is much more to come from Michael O'Halloran, after the forward made his Gers debut.

Warburton's men continued their pursuit of the Scottish Championship title on Tuesday night, beating Raith Rovers 1-0 away from home thanks to an Andy Halliday goal.

The result leaves Rangers eight points clear at the top of the table, and whilst second-placed Hibernian do have a game in hand to play, the Gers are in a strong position right now.

The game came just a day after the closure of the winter transfer window, and Rangers completed one major deal, snapping up forward Michael O'Halloran from St. Johnstone after a long, drawn out transfer saga.

O'Halloran, 25, was named on the bench against Raith Rovers, and came on with around 25 minutes left to play as he made his Rangers debut in a cameo role.

The Scottish forward couldn't help Rangers find a goal, but will be glad to have featured given that he is cup-tied for this weekend's Scottish Cup tie against Kilmarnock.

After the game on Tuesday, manager Warburton was asked by The Scottish Herald about O'Halloran's debut, and admitted that the forward hasn't even had time to train with his team-mates yet - but says there is more to come from him after a run-out at Raith Rovers.

"It was a long day for Michael yesterday and he hadn’t trained with us yet," said Warburton. "He met the boys for the first time today so I’m sure he was happy to get a football kit on again. There will be more to come from him," he added.
