Doncaster’s Harry Forrester close to Rangers switch


Rangers manager Mark Warburton has revealed that Doncaster Rovers’ forward Harry Forrester is undergoing a medical with the Ibrox club.

The 24-year-old could be Warburton’s first signing of the January transfer window after being deemed surplus to requirements after dropping out of Darren Ferguson’s plans.It would be the third time that the duo would work today after spells with Watford and Brentford previously.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Warburton, said: “I know Harry very well, I know him from Watford. We are working with Doncaster, who are being tremendous with us in that respect. Harry is in having a medical today and we will see how that one progresses.

“He has the quality on the pitch, that is very evident. Off the pitch he’s a good lad and gets on well with the boys in the dressing room. He will add some quality to our squad.”

Forrester worked with Warburton at youth level with Watford before he earned a ‘dream move’ to Aston Villa in 2010. After failing to make a single first team appearance he spent time on loan at Kilmarnock, before moving to Brentford on a free in August 2011.

He spent two years with Brentford before signing for Doncaster Rovers in 2013 but has now reportedly done a deal with the League One side to cancel his contract to secure a move to Ibrox on a free.

Forrester has made 143 appearances in all competitions [64 as a substitute] and scoring 22 goals since 2010.
