Gers boss Warburton praises Michael O'Halloran's excellent performance against Alloa Athletic

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has hailed Michael O'Halloran's performance against Alloa Athletic.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that he felt Michael O'Halloran was excellent against Alloa Athletic.

The Gers won't be pleased this evening, as they could only muster a 1-1 draw away at Alloa Athletic this afternoon, with Jason Marr opening the scoring for the home side.

However, new Rangers signing Michael O'Halloran rescued his new side, swooping with just seven minutes to play, scoring his first goal for the club to snatch a point.

The former St. Johnstone forward, who signed for Rangers on deadline day, arrived as Warburton's new striking sensation, and he repaid some of his transfer fee this afternoon with a vital goal.

After the game, manager Warburton spoke to the club's official website about O'Halloran's performance, labelling it 'excellent', stating that the Scottish forward looked dangerous in his first start for Rangers this afternoon.

Warburton also looked at the display of fellow new signing Billy King, but wasn't happy with his side's end product as they played out a disappointing draw, in a result which still leaves them top of the Scottish Championship table.

"I’m really pleased for Michael and he looked really dangerous, and in particular in the last 10 to 15 minutes he was excellent," said Warburton. "He got his reward, and as well as him, I thought Billy King came on and did really well on the left with good movement. “There were some good performances today, but they won’t be remembered as good performances as we didn’t get the end product," he added.
