Rangers let Michael O’Halloran move on to Melbourne City

Michael O’Halloran has completed his move to A-League outfit Melbourne City after falling out of favour at Rangers.

The former Bolton winger had struggled to make an impact at Ibrox since Rangers’ return to the Scottish Premiership and spent the first half of last season on loan at St Johnstone.

The 27-year-old Scot has now opted for a fresh start in Australia and signed a two-year deal for Melbourne City, moving for what Rangers described as an “undisclosed fee”.

He told Melbourne’s official website: “I’m coming with high hopes to play my part in a team that I feel are really going places. I’m really looking forward to getting in, working hard and training.”

City head coach Warren Joyce added: “Michael brings a wealth of experience from a number of clubs, including one of the biggest in Europe. He’s a very exciting player to watch – he has pace to burn and is capable of creating and scoring goals.

“He will be an important addition to the squad and I know he is very ready to start pre-season preparations.”
