Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting Steven Gerrard to continue his recruitment drive this summer as he looks to rebuild the squad and compete in the Scottish Premiership.
The former Liverpool star has been busy since he was named as the Ibrox manager and has already made five additions to the squad, although he is expected to continue pushing on with the process between now and the end of the transfer window.
Ex-midfielder Gerrard will also be expected to make a number of cuts to his side as well, and one player is close to an exit from the Light Blues if reports are to be believed.
And that’s because, according to The Scottish Sun, Michael O’Halloran is edging closer to completing a move to Australia, where he looks set to team up with Melbourne City – it is believed that the winger will sign a contract with the A-League side imminently to bring his testing time in Glasgow to a close.
The 27-year-old had become an outcast at Rangers during the last campaign, and it is believed Gerrard did not have any plans for him and as such was keen to get him off their wage bill in a departure which is unlikely to faze our resident Light Blues supporters.
Landlord’s Verdict: The locals in the bar will be pleased to see him go this summer, not least because the winger did not make many friends in the Tavern when he was spotted sitting in with Old Firm rivals Celtic fans during their Scottish Cup final victory against Motherwell.
Add in his frankly dire spell at Ibrox, and his imminent departure is one welcomed by many Gers fans in the Tavern as Gerrard continues his Rangers overhaul.
Rangers fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
