Rangers wideman Michael O'Halloran spent his first six months at Ibrox struggling to fit in. But now the pacey forward hopes to become a permanent fixture in Mark Warburton's line-up after finally finding his feet in Glasgow.

O'Halloran joined the Gers from St Johnstone back in January but found himself flitting in and out of the Light Blues' matchday squad because of form and eligibility.

Ahead of visiting Dundee today (12.15pm), he said: "It was disappointing last season when I came in because it was a little stop-start with me being cup-tied. It wasn't ideal.

"That's just part and parcel of what happens when you sign in January though. I always knew there was a possibility the club could do well in the cup and I'd have to miss out.

"But since I've come in, the boys have been fantastic. They welcomed me just as they have welcomed the other lads who have arrived this summer.

"I've got a good pre-season under my belt this time and the trip to America was good because it helped me gel with the boys a bit more.

"I'm loving every minute of it now and feel much more settled."

Rangers, meanwhile, have begun legal action against former chief executive Charles Green and Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley.
