Michael O’Halloran had a night to forget against his former side on Wednesday evening as St Johnstone suffered a 3-0 home defeat against Rangers.
O’Halloran more than played his part in that – albeit for only six minutes – as the former Rangers man was sent off just after coming off the pitch.
The 29-year-old, who looked like he had no intention of playing any kind of football on the night, was sent off for two yellow card offences.
O’Halloran only came off the bench with just under 15 minutes left to play, but inside five minutes he was in the book for a needless foul on Alfredo Morelos near the halfway line.
Just two minutes later and he was given his marching orders with a second yellow card after a late and reckless challenge on Borna Barisic.
O’Halloran, who joined Rangers in 2016 from St Johnstone, looked like he was out to make a statement against his old employers, but now he finds his place in the Saints squad at risk.
Speaking after the game, St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson said that the player will have to earn his trust again if he is to make it back into the team.
These Rangers fans on social media did not mind watching their former player – who is not exactly a popular figure – see red.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter.

I hope Gerrard didn't miss him.
O'Halloran should be ashamed of his short time on the pitch. https://t.co/tjMMjMVEfl

The problem here is he’s a well known Celtic man and what he was actually trying to do was injure some players to try to help his beloved team well done to the ref for dealing with it

Out of all the shameful things that happened during the Banter years one of the worst must have been allowing Michael O'halloran to wear our Jersey
