'I’m pretty confident' - Manager makes revelation about Rangers attacker deal
AFC Wimbledon manager Neil Ardley has admitted he’s in the dark over Harry Forrester’s future at the club after Rangers’ managerial changes.
Forrester joined Wimbledon on a season-long loan after falling out of favour under now-former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha and Ardley revealed he didn’t know if there was a break clause in the player’s loan agreement.
Gers attacker Forrester took his time to get started with the League One side but has since found his stride at Kingsmeadow and has scored twice in 14 appearances.
Ardley also revealed that the attacker may have a break clause in his deal with Wimbledon, but is pretty sure that the Light Blues won’t be in a hurry to execute it when January comes around.
“The honest answer is there probably is,” Dons boss Ardley said when asked about a break clause, as quoted by London News Online
“But I’m not sure it is going to happen, I’m pretty confident something is not going to happen.

“Most season-long loans have these sort of things in there but it is not something to really worry about.”
Forrester joined Rangers at the start of 2015 from Doncaster but has struggled to be anything more than a fringe player at Ibrox.
While clearly a talented footballer, Forrester isn’t the most industrious of players and is a luxury teams can ill-afford at times.
The attacking midfielder’s Ibrox contract expires in 2019 although it’s unlikely he’ll be offered extended terms regardless of managerial changes.
Forrester scored eight times in 44 appearances for Rangers.
