Micky O’Halloran could be on his way back to St Johnstone after a disastrous year on the dark side.

According to a report in Paul Murray’s favourite newspaper Mark Warburton is willing to let the winger go out on loan as he desperately tries to slash the club wage bill.

With little chance of bringing in a transfer fee for any of the 18 stars that he has added to the wage bill it seems that Sevco will allow any of their stars to go out on loan provided the other club pick up the wages tab.

Warbo, who used to work as a city trader, first took an interest in O’Halloran when St Johnstone hammered the tribute act 3-1 in a League Cup tie.

After unsettling the player with repeated bids around the £150,000 mark a deal was agreed close to the end of last January’s transfer window.

Whether the reported fee of £350,000 has been paid in full is unknown with some unfounded suggestions claiming that the full fee was heavily linked to appearances.

Now after 13 league appearances and with his career going backwards O’Halloran is set to leave Ibrox with a cut price or no price return to St Johnstone looking likely.

There has been no reports of any interest in Matt Gilks or Matt Crooks who are both looking to get out of Ibrox.
