St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson has called on winger Michael O’Halloran to be more consistent in his performances as he enters a vital stage of his career.

The former Rangers winger is suspended for the upcoming trip to Tannadice to face Dundee United on Saturday. Davidson hopes that the player can make the best of what is left in his footballing career as he turns 30-years-old tomorrow.

Davidson says that it is up to the player to show how well he can perform on a regular basis.

“That special talent”

“We all know Michael has the ability to win you a game of football. He’s got that special talent. For me, Michael just has to show it on a more consistent basis” he said.

“It’s really up to him: ‘What does he want?’ Nobody else can tell him. How does he want to finish his career? He’s got five years I think. Football goes really quickly. He needs to make sure that he grabs it” Davidson concluded.

Meanwhile, Davidson has confirmed that if the right player is available he will be able to make additions to the St Johnstone squad in the January window.

“Hopefully we can do something”

“I’ve spoken to the chairman, and he says that if the right players become available who will improve the squad and give it freshness, there will be money there. Loans are probably the likelier option. Hopefully we can do something” he disclosed.

It will be interesting to see if St Johnstone make any notable signings in the January window. Perhaps a winger will come in to put pressure on O’Halloran.
