Time is a great healer, but it doesn't look like Rangers fans have forgiven Michael O'Halloran for sitting with Celtic supporters at a Scottish Cup final last season.

The 28-year-old, a boyhood Hoops supporter [Herald Scotland], left Ibrox for a stint in Australia a month later, but he is back in Scotland with St Johnstone following an injury-ravaged stint in the A-League.

O'Halloran, who managed just 78 minutes for Melbourne City in total, was replaced after 10 minutes for Saints in a game against Rangers youngsters today.
