Rangers winger Michael O'Halloran thinks his side are “more than equipped” to challenge in the Scottish Premiership next season, with battling for the title their aim. 

Despite losing 3-2 to Falkirk on Friday, the Gers are still en route to returning to the top flight for the first time since they had to start in fthe ourth tier after their liquidation in 2012.

Mark Warburton’s team currently find themselves 11 points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship table with a game in hand.

And O'Halloran feels Rangers have several players in their ranks who have experience of playing in the Scottish Premiership.

The 25-year-old, who will not feature against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final on 17th April as he is cup tied, however, insisted that he is relishing the prospect of playing in Old Firm derbies in the Scottish Premiership next season.


“Rangers are more than equipped to perform well in the Premiership", he was quoted as saying by the Herald Scotland.

"There are some top players here in the dressing room, including some who have played in the top flight before and know what it’s about.

“We are more than capable of competing at that level next season. Competing for the title has to be the aim for a club like Rangers.

“We aim to win every game in every competition we’re in. Hopefully I can get a crack at a few Old Firm games next season.

“It could be at least four games and I’ll look forward to that, but first and foremost we have to get there first."

O'Halloran, who joined Rangers from Scottish Premiership outfit St Johnstone on a four-and-a-half-year deal in January, has thus far made seven league appearances for his new employers, scoring once and providing an assist.
