'Things change' - Midfielder eager for opportunity of Rangers return
By James Black
Rangers outcast Harry Forrester has admitted he would “love” a return to Ibrox after his loan spell with AFC Wimbledon ends.
The 26-year-old midfielder joined Wimbledon on a season-long loan deal in the summer after falling out of favour with Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha.
Since joining the Dons, Forrester has scored once and grabbed three assists in 13 appearances as he has made himself a first-team regular.
“I’d love there to be (an opportunity to return), but for the moment my sights are firmly set on Wimbledon,” Forrester said as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Rangers are a massive club, it’s an honour to play for a club that big.

“Things change and new people come in. Opinions are opinions, that’s the way football is.
“I didn’t want to leave permanently and you never know what happens in football.
“I’ve come here to work and to play and I’ll give 110 per cent, that’s a given, and we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.”
Forrester joined Rangers from Doncaster Rover in January 2016 and made 44 appearances for the Gers before heading back down south on a temporary deal.
The 26-year-old still has a little under two years remaining on his Ibrox contract but it’s unclear if he will be in a position to return at the end of the season.
Forrester was frozen out by Caixinha amid reports he was unhappy with the player’s attitude and commitment in training.
The former Watford, Aston Villa and Brentford midfielder was one of 12 players to leave Ibrox this summer as Caixinha rebuilt the squad he inherited from Mark Warburton.
Winbledon are currently two places above the relegation zone in League One after 15 games.
Forrester may come up against fellow Rangers loanee Joe Dodoo when his side travel to face Dodoo’s Charlton on Saturday.
