About as cowardly a player as I've seen at Rangers.

He doesn't want the ball so he stays with the defenders to take himself out as an option for a pass. Then there's his inability to lift his head and see the picture around him, instead it's just a little burst then cross into the first defender

He had a chance to show any potential new manager he was worth a try, but looked too frightened

Gie the guy a break ffs.

It wasn't just him that made mistakes today.

Play him through the middle and see how he does then.

Not the quality we need. McCann rightly critical of his movement in commentary but on those few occasions he did get the ball, his thought process is shockingly bad.

Just hasn't worked out with him so we need to move him on.

The Busby Bear
12-02-2017, 16:58
Exactly what I thought, he puts himself in positions that are almost impossible to find with a pass. He's also a very poor footballer.

Not sure what is wrong with him. Seems to have all the attributes needed to succeed other than a football brain. Strange signing at a time when we needed better - I know he is an 'athlete' but I think he needs a loan spell or a run in the reserves to boost his confidence. I'm sure there is a player in there somewhere but he is no where near ready to pull on a first team shirt yet.

He's been at it for an awful long time so no I won't give the guy a break. Some players are just poor, not many go out their way to hide the way this guy does.

Sick of it

He is either brainless or his confidence is totally shot.

I have stuck up for him, but I have to agree with the OP.
There is no place at Rangers for a player who hides.
The shirt is too big for him.

He is utter garbage, movement in s atrocious,crossing atrocious, sooner we punt him the better

Yeah. Looks like a good player for a smaller club. Certainly looks as if he hasn't the mentality for us.

12-02-2017, 17:02

Absolutely brain deed, bringing him on nearly cost us the game .i can see murty's thinking , their tiring, they've got to push forward and they'll leave space at the back to exploit . Get someone with pace on . Pity as you say he brought a coward on

At least the guys that made mistakes actually wanted the ball, it was quite evident O'Halloran was avoiding it - and if he did get it he was offloading it as soon as he possibly could.

Wasn't lost on me that McCann seemed to be offering a lot of coaching analysis to MOH. A new manager will get him motoring for sure.

I wonder if Mcleish will be bringing McCann in alongside

"Play him through the middle"...I'm sick of hearing this it's mental.
Tell me what idea could anyone have for wanting this.
He lacks composure,easily shoved off ball and has no footballing brain whatsoever.

Houlet
12-02-2017, 17:07
I think MOH is very good at what he does however I don't think he should have been a target signing. He's very quick and needs space to run into, most teams we meet park the bus so we don't get the best from him. Maybe we bought him to play in Europe and against the schum.

Some players are just crap, that's not their fault I can accept that. I'll never accept players hiding or players passing the buck, it's pathetic.

gtm
12-02-2017, 17:09

I think he almost certainly will get games between now and the end of the season and I understand his confidence is low just now, but where do you see him fitting into the team going forward? He's not a winger IMO. Should we play him through the middle? I'm just not sure he can turn it around from here.

To me it makes a difference when we are at a low ebb yet folk can't wait to be first on a message board to start a negative thread about our own team.

But that is my opinion and you have yours.

When a new manager comes in.

Coming back from the game, to be honest I've defended him but he was dire. He can't control a ball.

Confidence is very important of course. There'll be a new manager in (maybe two) so we'll see how things go then.

12-02-2017, 17:16
You just know that the moment the ball is played to him, the move will break down.

He offers absolutely nothing.

Whether that can improve, who knows?

I agree about playing him through the middle but he needs run of games to regain his confidence imo! I would like to see a few turn it around!

Without doubt, more than a few need to turn it around starting at Dens next week. If not, we can forget about 2nd place. Can't rely on Miller, Hill, McKay and Hyndman for the rest of the season. Others will need to step up.

HARTHILL_GER
12-02-2017, 17:22
His lack of effort today was an utter disgrace. Twice in the last ten minutes Miller and Waghorn had to cover him as he walked back. He also looks like he's never played football before when it comes to running off the ball. The guy is hopeless.

Dodoo has to be in the squad before him going forward.

Jacrispy

He's not a winger? Whys he been playing there his full career then??

The run of games thing...

He's had so many excuses made for him it's untrue. It's maybe time he sat in the stand to appreciate how little he is doing in the team because he's had runs in the team and that didn't help improve his performances.

HALLIDAY, SENDEROS, O'HALLERAN, ................not good enough.



They are stealing wages from us.



Halliday, cannot trap a ball first time.That's where his clumsy mistakes happen.


Senderos.....heading ability is atrocious and his passing is gash. That's the first time I've seen him live for us and playing 90 minutes.



O'Halleran.....NO heart, NO fight, gives up possession too easily and contribution is very minimal.

Based off of absolutely nothing other than the fact Lovenkrands was also quick and did better through the middle. But then Lovenkrands was also a far better footballer, a great finisher and he'd make the right runs.

Why play a guy, who made a name for himself at St Johnstone as a wide right player, a chance through the middle?

Seriously, what is your logic here?

The guy is chronic, face it - 500k pissed down the drain.

That header at the back post he had sums the guy up.

I am sick to the back teeth withis guy. He was hiding today. His header at the goal was a joke, got in the way of a shot on target... final ball was atrocious.... should be nowhere near a Rangers team.
A terrible signing, 2 goals against us and Warburton thought he was a world beater ....
How many goals did he actually score in his career at St Johnstone? Be lucky if he ever hit double figures a season.

He is not interested in playing for Rangers

There is no place at Rangers for a player who hides.
The shirt is too big for him.

He was never a standout in a poor St johnstone team. Yes he ripped our centre backs once in the cup, it was a lazy signing based on one decent performance.

Lets face it looking back MW had an awful eye for a player for us.

Wes is the only signing he's made out of 20+ who look to be good enough long term.

GEODGC
12-02-2017, 23:09
I must admit, I feel sorry for O'Halloran, he was signed from a team that play on the break at times, especially away to the likes of Rangers and Celtic. His whole game is using his blistering pace to get in behind defences from the area around the halfway line or just beyond. When he arrived here he has been asked to play against defences that sit in with 11 men behind the ball, they sit deep and offer very little chance for a guy like him to get in behind them. Ironically, the games when he could have done a bit of damage...away to Celtic, the cup game at Hampden etc....he hasn't had a sniff.

No matter how much pl would go missing, I've no idea why you'd compare they two. Pl cost two - three times as much and was value for money when you look at his goals to game and achievements. MOH has been completely woeful.

The guy certainly has pace but very little to go with it but he could man up with a stronger manager.

He's been a poor signing with questionable commitment and a one dimensional approach. Would have been happy if we could have recouped some of his transfer cost in January.

A big disappointment like Boyd second time around...seems to hide and not want to take responsibility ,his 'header' summed up his contribution today.

At least with Kris Boyd he tried, and the vast majority of times there was not a sole feeding him, as for MOH, sorry we're landed with him because of his contract which was well overpriced in the first place.

Wow MOH must be the most slated player at the club, people are saying he almost cost us the game when he came on, don't know how.

What about halliday or senderos who was even worse than him. Tbh I wouldn't really care if we lost any of our players at the moment, none of them are good enough to challenge!

Hiding? We might as well have been playing with 10 men. Gets the ball and instantly looks to get rid of it

At the end he just had to stay wide and Toral can basically play him in on goal. He half heartedly jogs towards the centre halfs so he doesn't have to receive the pass and risk making an arse of it

His level of cowardice deserves all the criticism it attracts

How time changes opinion.

He was too lazy to get off his @rse the second time round.

He came for a pay cheque. He was a joke in the second spell.

He's got an uncanny ability to always hit the defender when he crosses, i think he lacks a footballing brain as he always cuts inside when there is space on the flanks and as a result he was the cause of a few moves breaking down yesterday with his stupidity.

The Big Cheese
13-02-2017, 09:55
Why are folk still defending him?

He's absolutely awful.

Flogging a dead horse springs to mind.
The O'Hallaron defenders just cannot admit that they're wrong.
He is one of the poorest players ever to wear the jersey.

supergers07
13-02-2017, 10:04
Up to a new manager to decide if he warrants a go, like all of them.

Clean slate for the majority

CGC
13-02-2017, 10:15
I don't think he's a bad footballer all of a sudden after signing for us, just that as a self-proclaimed Celtc fan his heart isn't in it.

Guaranteed his 'form' will return when he's sold.

david1982

O'Halloran is not suited to playing in a game where the opposition has 10 men behind the ball, he does not have the ability to beat a full back and bung in a cross.

His main attribute is the out ball for a team who soak up pressure and hit on the break where he can play on the shoulder and then get in behind with his pace.

He will go somewhere else in the SPL and be ok, it just does not suit him at Rangers.

Sounds like a tactic a certain incoming manager may adopt in games.

He cuts inside from the wing because he is a COWARD, he knows the stick he will get from the fans when he makes ANOTHER Balls Up, never a footballer at a big Club suited to one exception, in the East End, then its lower half of the SPL.

"Play him through the middle"...I'm sick of hearing this it's mental.
Tell me what idea could anyone have for wanting this.
He lacks composure,easily shoved off ball and has no footballing brain whatsoever.

I don't get this either haha changing where he plays will not somehow give him ability.

His movement yesterday was pathetic. McCann mentioned it on more than one occasion. He moves towards the ball and closer to the defender who he should be trying to get away from. He doesn't want the ball.

I will admit I was pleased when we signed up but what a failure he has been.

He looks as fit as Phuck ,when he gets the ball he looks as though he is having a phu@kin fit, something definitely not right about him.

BigBlueBomber

At the game yesterday and even my 15yo lad said "he walks around thinking he is gallas, but is scared to get the ball"

He has no urgency and as others have said just doesn't want the ball. When Morton had the ball he nonchalantly strolled back more concerned his sleeves covered the gap to his gloves. You wouldn't be cold mate if you had made any effort !

Aunty Christ
13-02-2017, 10:47
I always felt he didn't feel comfortable playing for the big bad Rangers. Its in his blood. A few posters on here seem to know him and say this is definitely not the case. That's fair enough. I now think his confidence has completely gone.

Whatever the reason. Whatever the history. If it were possible to punt O'Halloran to a lower league English outfit I'd snap their hand off. Would never sell him to any Scottish club in case by some miracle his form miraculously returns and he comes back to haunt us. Webster-itis if you like. Complete charlatan who's been given more than enough chances

greigj85
13-02-2017, 11:04
Complete lack of interest. Looks very nervous as well.

Not sure if he is happy picking up a wage on the bench or his confidence is shot to pieces.

Either or, i hope he doesn't stick around for us to find the answer. Not good enough!

Folk comparing him with Lovenkrands when the more apt comparison is Gregg Wylde. In fact I'd rather have Gregg Wylde in our squad than him - at least he tried/cared.

O'Halloran isn't a footballer. He's just someone who can run really fast with a ball at their feet. Can't pass or shoot, doesn't have a footballing brain and looks totally uninterested in anything going on around him.

Killie and StJ at Ibrox. He was very good in both.

I have to say if you add his red card at Motherwell to his demeanour yesterday, I think he definitely wants out. That said, to be fair, he never recovered yesterday after he botched the header back rather than at goal with his first touch. His head clearly dropped after that.

He can be a very effective attacker used properly but yesterday was the poorest I've seen him and, as McCann was saying on the telly, he needs properly coached.

I certainly don't think anyone can judge him overall on the cameos he has for us. God knows what's been going on at Auchenhowie for the past year or so

As far as I am aware he is desperate to succeed at Rangers and is one of the first in and last to leave and takes on extra training which makes his performance yesterday all the more worrying.

For what it's worth I think his confidence is completely gone, at St Johnstone he had the luxury of playing week in week out without much scrutiny. The fact that a few SPL teams were keen to take him on loan makes me hope a decent manager could get better performances out of him.

I agree. He looked all at sea. I noticed Waghorn gave him a wee pat on the back when he came on... get the feeling Waghorn was not just talking about himself when he had a dig at Warburton's team selection.

I hope a new manager puts an arm around him and gets him playing to the level he was at before. Even if his future ultimately lies elsewhere (I hope not), it does no one any good to trash the kid.

This really is going to be last chance saloon for him
FWIW, I think someone like McLeish would use him for better than he has been so far.
