'Gutted' - Rangers fans react to speculation forward has agreed transfer
By Harry Sykes
Rangers forward Harry Forrester is reportedly set to join English League One side Wimbledon – and fans of the Glasgow giants have delivered mixed verdicts on his imminent exit.
It was widely reported on Friday evening, including by the Daily Record, that the left-winger, 26, has agreed to sign for the London club.
There has been no official confirmation yet but supporters accept the veracity of the reports as they bid farewell to yet another former first teamer who was a favourite of ex-manager Mark Warburton.
Forrester is set to become the 11th player to leave Ibrox this summer as Pedro Caixinha continues his massive revamp of the playing squad.
The forward is top leave after being told by the manager to stay away from training and to find a new club as far back as June.

Will realise they’ll never ever go to a bigger club than Rangers

Don’t get the fuss over Forrester. He was decent at dribbling but overall was shocking. 90% his shots went 200ft over the bar.

The attacker has not been included in any of the Gers’ opening matches of the 2017-18 campaign and is now in line to join the increasingly lengthy list of departures.
Forrester joined Rangers in the 2016 winter window and he made 44 appearances, scoring eight goals and providing three assists.
