Rangers have agreed to let attacker Harry Forrester leave Ibrox to join English League One outfit AFC Wimbledon, it was confirmed on Wednesday.
The Ibrox giants announced via both their official Twitter account and website on Wednesday afternoon that the 26-year-old would be spending the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign in the English third tier.

Forrester was reportedly told to stay away from training and to find a new club in June by March appointment Pedro Caixinha and that left-winger will now be looking to impress at Wimbledon in an attempt to gain a permanent move.
The London outfit have had a difficult start to their League One campaign, suffering two defeats and a draw in their first three games leaving them in 22nd place.
They will be hoping the signing of Forrester can help them steer clear of the drop zone and the former England Under-17 international has previously showcased his talents south of the border, which led to a move to Scotland.
Football Insider verdict:
It has been clear for several months now that Forrester’s time at Ibrox is numbered and fans are unlikely to lose too much sleep over his departure. The attacker looked good in the Scottish Championship for Rangers and he did play a big part in helping the Gers to get over the line and back to Scotland’s top-flight. However, it soon became apparent that in the Premiership Forrester is simply not good enough and therefore this move suits all parties involved as Wimbledon look to retain their status in League One.
In other Rangers transfer news, Caixinha has given a mouthwatering transfer update.
