Michael O’Halloran ‘delighted’ to sign for Rangers


Rangers have announced the signing of St.Johnstone forward Michael O’Halloran for a reported fee of around £500,000.

The 25-year-old has signed a four-year deal after the Ibrox side finally increased their fee to match the Perth Saints demands after two previous bids were rejected.

Speaking to the official Rangers website after he signed for the championship side, O’Halloran said: “I am happy it is finally over the line because it has been a long time. I’ve not known whether I am coming or going over the last month but I am delighted to be here now.

“When you hear of the interest though your immediate reaction is that you want to go to the big club and I am just happy the opportunity has finally come and the move has happened.”

St.Johnstone chairman Steve Brown, added: “I’m satisfied with the transfer fee which reflects our full valuation of the player and we wish Michael all the best in the future.”

He joined the Perth side two years ago after being released by Bolton Wanderers and has made a total of 89 appearances for the Premiership side, scoring 16 times.

O’Halloran’s final game for St.Johnstone was the 2-1 defeat to Hibernian in Saturday’s League Cup semi-final at Tynecastle. He will go straight into the Rangers squad for Tuesday night’s league clash against Raith Rovers.
