HARRY FORRESTER is heading for Iran after his Rangers contract was scrapped with a year still to run.

The English-born midfielder, 27, who made 44 appearances after joining in January 2016, has left the club by “mutual consent”.

Forrester, who was signed by ex-boss Mark Warburton from Doncaster Rovers, spent last season on loan at League One outfit AFC Wimbledon where he turned out 43 times and netted three goals.

However, he has been told he is not part of Steven Gerrard’s plans for the future and it was best for both the club and the player that he move on.

Now the player is about to seal a deal with Iranian side Tractor Sazi who are managed by Welsh legend John Toshack.

He follows Kenny Miller, Bruno Alves, Dalcio, Michael O’Halloran, David Bates and Jordan Thompson in leaving Ibrox this summer.

Wes Foderingham could be the next to go, although the Gers will demand a reasonable fee for the keeper who had been the regular No.1 until the return of Scotland international Allan McGregor.
