After no-showing Monday’s U20 fixture with Hearts, it looks like Michael O’Halloran’s Rangers career is over.

The 26-year-old forward attended training yesterday at Auchenhowie where he was informed by manager Pedro Caixinha that he would be training away from the first team for the foreseeable future. It’s understood O’Halloran has also been fined by the club for failing to attend the Forthbank fixture.

O’Halloran was expected to start against Jon Daly’s Hearts side and his unexpected absence forced Graeme Murty into a last minute selection change with Andy Dallas coming into replace the former St. Johnstone player.

Despite reports last night that it was a breakdown in communication that led to O’Halloran not knowing when he was to appear for the U20s, it has been confirmed to us that this wasn't the case and the player simply didn't attend.
