Rangers star Michael O'Halloran offers prediction on Ibrox team-mate Barrie McKay's potential

Rangers forward Michael O'Halloran believes Barrie McKay can go right to the top.

Rangers forward Michael O'Halloran has told the Glasgow Evening Times that his team-mate Barrie McKay can go right to the top of the game.

The Gers moved another step closer to winning the Scottish Championship and subsequent promotion to the Scottish Premiership after an entertaining 4-3 win over Queen of the South on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Harry Forrester, O'Halloran, Andy Halliday and James Tavernier handed Rangers all three points at Ibrox, meaning they only need two more wins to claim the title.

It's been a great season for manager Mark Warburton, who has had Rangers challenging for promotion throughout the season, and it seemed that he was even planning for the top flight during the January transfer window with the signing of O'Halloran.

Now, the Scot has had great words to say about fellow winger Barrie McKay in an interview with the Glasgow Evening Times, who has been simply outstanding for Rangers throughout the campaign.

The 21-year-old, formerly of Kilmarnock, had become something of a forgotten man at Ibrox before Warburton's arrival, and he has gone from strength to strength under the Englishman's tutelage.

Now, McKay is in contention for Rangers' player of the year award, and O'Halloran predicts that he can go all the way to the top of the game, such is his huge potential.

"Barrie is a great player, he is still young and I think he can go to the top," said O'Halloran. "I have been really impressed with Barrie, he has been flying this season. He has got himself in the team and stayed there. He has performed well and been really influential for the team so it has been a fantastic season for him," he added.

How good do you think McKay can become?
