Manager Pedro Caixinha has revealed that the “situation” of Rangers duo Rob Kiernan and Harry Forrester could be resolved by the end of the month.
Kiernan, 26, missed each of the Gers’ last eight Premiership games through injury last season and earlier in July the Scottish Sun reported that English League One side MK Dons had mad a move for the unwanted player.
Meanwhile, Forrester, also 26 was claimed by Southend boss Phil Brown to have “poure cold water” on a move back to England, but the manager told that if a move plausible then he would be interested.
Now, Caixinha has claimed in a transfer update on Thursday, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account that Kiernan is close to an exit, while Forrester may take a bit more time.

Caixinha has added a massive nine players to his Rangers squad this summer, including centre-backs Fabio Cardoso and Bruno Alves, which has pushed Kiernan down the pecking order.
Meanwhile, wide players Dalcio and Daniel Candeias have also ensured that Forrester faces an even tougher battle for a first team spot.
Each of Rangers’ new signings will now be preparing for the season opener against Motherwell, while Kiernan and Forrester are likely to be headed for the exit door before the September transfer deadline.
