Former Rangers forward Michael O’Halloran, who left the Ibrox club in the summer transfer window, has suggested that he will return to the Scotland in the future, as quoted in The Scottish Sun.

O’Halloran joined Rangers from St Johnstone in January 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £500,000.

The 27-year-old forward struggled to make an impact at Ibrox, and spent the first half of the 2017-18 campaign on loan at St Johnstone.

The former Scotland Under-21 international forward joined Melbourne City from Rangers in the summer transfer window.


O’Halloran, who has suffered with a long-term hamstring injury during his time in Australia so far, has said that he sees him going back to the Scottish Premiership in the future, and has suggested his former club St Johnstone as a possible destination.

The Scottish Sun quotes O’Halloran as saying: “The SPFL is a good league with a lot of good players and I do see myself coming back eventually.

“I have a lot of time for St Johnstone and always look to see how they’re doing. I’ve got a lot of friends there as well but you never know where football could take you.”

No Rangers return

O’Halloran failed to make an impact at Rangers, and it is hard to see the forward return to Ibrox in his career.

Moreover, Rangers fans were not happy with the forward after he sat with Celtic fans at the Scottish Cup final in May 2018, as reported by The Daily Record.
