St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has confirmed he’s interested in signing winger Michael O’Halloran from St Johnstone.
The 30-year-old is in his third spell at McDiarmid Park following a move from Rangers in 2019. He is out-of-contract in the summer and St Mirren manager Goodwin says he’s a player that could be offered a deal – but nothing has happened yet.
He said: “Michael is a player I have always liked. He has plenty of great attributes, his pace, his power, he’s played at a really good level. He’s on the list but I have a list with 50 or 60 players on it. Michael is a player we’ve spoke about but there hasn’t been anything concrete put to him yet.”
Goodwin’s team booked a Scottish Cup semi-final spot with St Johnstone this week after they knocked out Kilmarnock and Callum Davidson’s side spectacularly eliminated Rangers in the quarter-finals. The Paisley manager reckons his Perth opposition will be favourites for that bout at Hampden next month.
Goodwin said: “I don’t think there is a great deal between the teams on paper. I think we are evenly matched throughout the squad. But St Johnstone have been and done it in the League Cup this year and that gives them a slight advantage. But we don’t mind the underdog tag. St Johnstone would deservedly be the favourites in many people’s eyes.”
