LEE WALLACE has praised Gers forward Michael O’Halloran after he was named man of the match at the end of today’s 3-0 victory over Kilmarnock.
The club’s lightning quick number 29 was a constant threat on the right flank and never gave the visitors’ full-back Greg Taylor a chance to catch his breath.
Although he didn’t find the net, O’Halloran was a standout in an excellent team display and after the final whistle Wallace said: “That’s twice now that Michael has come in and done really well.
We all know his capabilities, he’s probably the most electric player in the league in terms of his power and his pace and when he has got someone ‘one v one’ or even sometimes ‘one v two’ he’s got that ability and that power to get past these players.
“He’s going to be chipping in with assists and goals in games to come. If he can maintain his form and bring what he can to the team it’s going to be a right plus for us.”
In truth it wouldn’t have been easy picking a MOTM from this afternoon’s match, with so many of the Rangers players hitting top form.
However, after scoring his side’s third goal Joe Garner was another player Wallace was more than happy to talk up when he spoke to RangersTV post-match, adding: “Joe has come to the club to try and score goals and try and get used to the way we play.
“I think it’s been a wee bit different for him in the past, the style he has been involved in, but he’s adapting well and I think we saw more of his link-up play today, and there is definitely going to be more to come on that.
“So it’s great he can build on his goals and we can move forward and we can all be a bit pleased with the performance today.
“But we are not wanting to stand still, we are going to keep moving forward and, as I said, that could be a real benchmark on how we go about our business and we can go again next Sunday and get another three points.”
