Rangers forward Harry Forrester has become the 10th player to leave Ibrox this summer after agreeing terms with English League One side Wimbledon, according to a report.
The Daily Record have claimed on their website that the 26-year-old left-winger has moved to the English third tier after being told by manager Pedro Caixinha to stay away from training and to find a new club as far back as June.
The attacker has not been included in any of the Gers’ opening matches of the 2017-18 campaign and he has joined the list of outgoings as Pedro Caixinha overhauls the squad which finished in third place in the last campaign.
Each of Clint Hill, Philippe Senderos, Joe Garner, Barrie McKay, Matt Crooks, Rob Kiernan, Martyn Waghorn, Andy Halliday and Michael O’Halloran have all left either permanently, or on loan in the Portuguese boss’ first summer window with a total of nine players coming in.
Forrester himself had been in Glasgow for a year and a half since joining in the 2016 winter window and he finished making 44 appearances, scoring eight goals and providing three assits.
Football Insider verdict:
Forrester was a good player for Rangers in the Scottish Championship, but like many others they have proven not to be capable of playing at the top level. The demands of playing like a club for the Ibrox giants have been too much for many of the players contracted to the Gers since their promotion and Forrester is only the latest who has not been able to perform in the Premiership. He has also previously proven a success in England and therefore this deal will suit all parties.
In other Rangers transfer news, Caixinha has given a mouthwatering transfer update.
