Outspoken pundit and former Celtic man Chris Sutton joked that attacker Harry Forrester was now a certainty to score at the weekend after departing Rangers for Wimbledon on loan on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old attacker made the switch to the League One outfit for the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign after being reportedly told as far back as June by manager Pedro Caixinha to stay away from training and to find a new club.

He has become the 10th player to exit the Glasgow giants and that includes each of Joe Garner, Martyn Waghorn and Barrie McKay who have made scoring starts to their careers in the Championship with both Ipswich and Nottingham Forest respectively.

The scoring success of the aforementioned trio also hasn’t gone unnoticed by Sutton and via his personal Twitter account on Wednesday he joked that Forrester was set to continue the pattern after sealing his Rangers exit.

Forrester had previously made a name for himself in the English football leagues with Brentford and Doncaster respectively before making the switch up to Rangers in January 2016.

He played a strong role in helping the Gers achieve promotion back to the Premiership, but once in the Scottish top-flight he struggled.

The attacker will now be hoping to help Wimbeldon steer clear of the League One relegation zone and he will be eager to make his debut against old club Doncaster on Saturday.

In other Rangers news, Gers fans have also reacted on Twitter to Forrester’s exit.
