It is undeniable that Sevco parked their dignified bus at Hampden on Sunday.
Therefore a counter-attacking approach made sense.
Obviously, some players, ones blessed with pace, are well-suited to being in a team playing on the counter.
Therefore, I was surprised that Michael Francis O’Halloran played no part in the proceedings.
He was on the bench, but the Admirable Warburton decided against using him.
He was signed by the Holding Company Vehicle after using his blistering pace to deadly effect at Ibrox when St Johnstone played against the Engine Room Subsidiary.
I am led to believe that if the lad plays a certain number of games then something significantly contractual might happen.
Moreover, I understand that the trigger point in his contract might be very close.
Is this why Michael Francis O’Halloran is being used so sparingly?
That is certainly the view of several very well-placed sources.
I would have expected him to be in the colours of the four-year-old institution much more this season.
Could it be that a certain amount of games played will trigger another payment to the Perth club?
Another excellently placed source informs me that something similar is in place for the lightning quick Philippe Senderos.
Perhaps a milestone number of games might lead to an increase in salary for the quicksilver defender.
No doubt some intrepid award winning stenographer will run this one down.
After all, they love breaking stories about financial trouble at Ibrox.
They just can’t help themselves.
Relentless they are…
