Rangers outcast Harry Forrester needs to offer more than words if he is to earn a second chance at Ibrox after being sent on loan to AFC Wimbledon.
According to the Scottish Sun, Forrester wants to come back to Ibrox at the end of the season for the final year of his Rangers contract and show he deserves to play for a “huge football club.”
The attacking midfielder is undoubtedly talented but it’s his attitude and commitment that leaves serious question marks over him.
A motivated, determined Forrester would be a useful asset to Graeme Murty’s side but Forrester far too often looked uninterested and demotivated.
The former Aston Villa and Watford midfielder has been playing regularly for AFC Wimbledon but even there his return isn’t enough to make anyone at Rangers sit up and take notice of what he’s doing.
This is a player who was offered a multi-year contract at Ajax after impressing on trial so there is definitely a player in there somewhere but as he enters what should be the prime of his career, its one Rangers haven’t seen anywhere near enough of.
The best thing for Forrester now would be to put himself in the shop window and win a move away from Ibrox because with the likes of Daniel Candeias, Josh Windass and Jamie Murphy ahead of him he’s unlikely to get the second chance he is hoping for.
