Manager details chances of 26-year-old return to Rangers
AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley has rubbished speculation suggesting Harry Forrester is set to be recalled by parent club Rangers midway through his season-long loan.
Rangers have confirmed that director of football Mark Allen was working on bringing back certain players early from their loan deals – namely Andy Halliday – which lead some fans to believe Forrester could also be on his way back to Glasgow.
The attacker is unlikely to be recalled to Ibrox while Michael O’Halloran and Joe Dodoo are set to return to Ibrox when their loan deals expire next month.
Forrester, 26, missed Wimbledon’s Christmas Eve clash with Plymouth which only furthered speculation he would have his loan ripped up but Ardley insists he’s going nowhere just now.
“No, nothing,” Ardley said when asked about a recall, as quoted by GetSurrey.
“There’s been no indication. No anything, nor has Harry.

“So as far as I’m concerned he is my player until I’m told otherwise.”
Forrester has scored twice in 21 appearances for the League One side since his move south after enduring a slow start at the Wombles.
The former Doncaster, Aston Villa, Brentford and Kilmarnock attacker joined Rangers on a short-term deal in January 2016 before signing an extension three months later which keeps him at Ibrox until June 2019.
During his time at Ibrox, Forrester has made 44 appearances for the Gers scoring 8 times.
In other Rangers news, three Gers players could play their final games for the club against Celtic this week.
