MICHAEL O’HALLORAN is about to escape his Sevco Rangers hell.
The Ibrox forward agreed a four-and–a-half year deal when he was signed by ex-boss Mark Warburton in a £500,000 deal from St Johnstone in 2016.
However, O’Halloran, whose father is a youth team coach at Celtic, failed to settle with the Govan side and was loaned back to the Perth outfit at the start of the last campaign.
The 27-year-old winger was photographed among Hoops fans during Brendan Rodgers’ side’s 2-0 Scottish Cup Final win over Motherwell at Hampden earlier this month.
O’Halloran has been subject to sectarian abuse and heavy criticism in recent weeks and Motherwell may end the nightmare by taking him to Fir Park.
Steven Gerrard, who officially becomes the Ibrox club’s fourth manager in two years tomorrow as he follows Warburton, Pedro Caixinha and caretaker Graeme Murty, is likely to sanction the deal as he attempts to bring in some much-needed cash.
And former club St Johnstone are also monitoring the player’s situation.
One thing looks absolutely certain – former Scotland Under-21 international O’Halloran will be playing his football elsewhere in the new campaign.
