Veteran striker Michael O’Halloran has been signed by Cove Rangers for the remainder of the season.

The former Rangers winger moved north-east on loan from Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone and goes straight into the squad for the Cove’s game against Morton on Saturday.

O’Halloran, 32, brings much-needed experience to the Cove attack line as Paul Hartley’s side struggle to survive in their inaugural Scottish Championship season.

After a spell in Celtic’s youth academy, O’Halloran spent time at Bolton Wanderers, Sheffield United and Carlisle United before returning to Scotland in 2014 with the Saints.

Under Tommy Wright, O’Halloran was a key part of the St Johnstone team that won the Scottish Cup in 2014. Two years with Rangers and a time in Australia with Melbourne City would follow, but O’Halloran would return to Perth in 2019. .

And he would enjoy twice the pleasure of winning the Scottish and League Cups with Callum Davidson in 2021. O’Halloran has slipped down the pecking order this season, moving north for more playing time.
