American monk with a halo that’s slipping (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

oklahoman

Here is my best explanation:

'american' is the definition.

'monk with a halo that's slipping' is the subsidiary indication.

'with' says to put letters next to each other.

'that's slipping' is an anagram indicator.

'a'+'halo'='ahalo'

'monk' put after 'ahalo' is 'ahalomonk'.

'ahalomonk' anagrammed gives 'oklahoman'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for oklahoman that I've seen before include "from Tulsa?", "American" and "US resident".)
