Motherwell boss Mark McGhee has confirmed his interest in taking out-of-favour Rangers forward Michael O’Halloran on loan.

Speaking ahead of his side’s visit to Ibrox at lunchtime McGhee said: “We would jump at the chance of taking Michael but I think most clubs in the Premiership would. We don’t know where that’s going yet, but we’re interested. He’s a good player and I would have expected him to feature, but I’m sure Mark has his reasons.

“The team has a shape and he hasn’t featured but I think it would benefit him to come to Fir Park on loan."

The pacy 26-year-old only moved to Rangers last January but has struggled to nail down a regular starting place in Mark Warburton’s side. St. Johnstone, Oxford United, Barnsley and Hearts are all reported to have shown an interest in taking the former Scotland under 21 cap however Hearts boss Ian Cathro denied there was any plans to lure him to Tynecastle.

O’Halloran has made 18 appearances this season, with 9 coming of those coming from the bench, but has failed to score.
