Manager Pedro Caixinha has told Harry Forrester to stay away from training and has advised him to find a new club, according to a report.
The Daily Record has claimed that the Portuguese boss has laid down the law in Glasgow and banished the 26-year-old from the training ground after a workout on Sunday.
It is detailed that Caixinha has banned him for two weeks, but the March appointment has also told him “there’s little point in him ever coming back.”
It’s not the first time the player and manager have clashed either with the report also stating that Forrest had previously been sent home early from training because Caixinha was not happy with the player’s attitude.
The attacking winger initially joined Rangers under Mark Warburton in December 2015 on loan before previous manager Mark Warburton signed him permanently from Doncaster four months later in May.
He was a regular in the first team under Warburton, but since Caixinha’s appointment three months a go he has played just seven minutes in the Premiership, which came in the Portuguese manager’s first match against Hamilton.
Forrester still has two years left on his contract at the club, but it now looks as though his time is up.
Football Insider verdict:
Caixinha clearly doesn’t believe Forrester to be a player who can help the club progress and after all of the in comings this summer it is only natural that there will be some leaving. Now, Rangers fans certainly won’t be losing sleep when the likes of Forrester depart from Ibrox given the poor performances of a number of the Gers’ first team players in the last campaign.
