Rangers forward Michael O’Halloran has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that he is frustrated that he is not able to play against Celtic this month.
The Gers will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
O’Halloran, who joined Scottish Championship outfit Rangers from Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone in the January transfer window, is cup-tie and is not eligible for the match.
The former Scotland Under-21 international forward has admitted his frustration at not being able to play against Celtic for Rangers.
MO: I will be there at the Celtic game supporting this team and my teammates. It will be frustrating not to be involved.— Rangers FC (@RangersFC) April 4, 2016
MO: there is a wee bit of banter with my family and I'm sure there will be in my house that day with my Dad— Rangers FC (@RangersFC) April 4, 2016
O’Halloran started his career at Celtic and was at the Bhoys as a kid, but he failed to progress to the first team and moved to Bolton Wanderers.
Things did not work out for Scotsman at Bolton either, and he joined St Johnstone in 2014.
The 25-year-old forward has been playing well for Rangers since his switch to Ibrox in the January transfer window.
