Michael O'Halloran could be set for the exit door at Rangers after he was a no-show for a youth game according to a number of sources.

Rangers' Under-20s took on Hearts last night at Forthbank, winning 2-1. But O'Halloran was due to start for the side - and ended up being a no-show.

To make matters worse, O'Halloran will have enraged not only the club's coaching staff but also a major figure in the first-team dressing room, as Kenny Miller - who was helping out with the swifts- was reported to be furious by his non-appearance.

It's been a rocky road for O'Halloran ever since Mark Warburton shelled out £500,000 for his services last January. After initially looking good in flashes, he failed to really come up with any end product and couldn't nail down a starting place in the team, despite the right wing spot being up for grabs.

Pedro Caixinha's arrival, and fondness for direct, pacy, physical wingers seemed to be the perfect opportunity for the wide man. He was hurled on at right-back against Motherwell, but it seems like his chance will already be blown after this.

Whether there's a way back for O'Halloran isn't certain as there may have been a valid reason for his no-show, but we wouldn't expect to see him starting any time soon.

Rangers were contacted for comment but have yet to respond.
