Michael O’Halloran wants to build on an exciting period at St Johnstone as the former Rangers winger signs a contract extension until 2023.

The 30-year-old is in his third spell at St Johnstone following time at Rangers, winning his move to Ibrox after previous form in Perth. O’Halloran’s form in the second half of the 2020/21 season helped the McDiarmid Park club win an unprecedented League Cup and Scottish Cup double.

Former Rangers man O’Halloran had interest from fellow Scottish Premiership side St Mirren but St Johnstone was the team for him: “I’m delighted to have my future sorted out. I was out of contract at the end of the season and had other options to consider. But my focus was very much on trying to come to an agreement with St Johnstone.

“I’d like to thank the manager, the Chairman, the Board and Scott Boyd for making the process straightforward and making me feel wanted for the next couple of years. We have just completed the most successful season in the club’s history and I’m very proud to have played my part in what we achieved. I wanted to be here for the next stage.

“We are going into European football and we have really exciting times ahead. The dressing-room is a great place, the boys are all brilliant and the togetherness is second to none. We all enjoy coming into work and working with the manager and the coaching staff.

“I think we can see that with the number of players who have also renewed their contracts. Saints is a brilliant place to be.”
