Report: Rangers close to new signing, Harry Forrester travels to complete Gers medical

Rangers FC Building

Rangers are closing on on the signing of Doncaster Rovers' Harry Forrester.

According to the Daily Record, Doncaster Rovers playmaker Harry Forrester has undergone a medical in Glasgow ahead of his proposed move to Rangers.

Forrester, 24, started his career under Rangers boss Mark Warburton in the Watford youth setup, before leaving for Aston Villa in 2007.

After struggling to break in to Villa's first team, Forrester had a trial with Ajax before moving on to join up with Warburton once again, this time reuniting at Brentford, where Warburton was working as sporting director.

With 11 goals in 49 games during the 2012-13 season, Forrester became a key player at Griffin Park, but left at the end of that campaign in order to join Doncaster - and he hasn't been able to recapture the form he showed with Brentford, even becoming something of a forgotten man under new boss Darren Ferguson.

Now, Forrester could be set for another reunion with Warburton, as we at HITC reported on Tuesday that Forrester was closing in a move to Ibrox once he negotiates his release from Doncaster.

That now looks one step closer, as the Daily Record today report that Forrester has been in Glasgow to undergo a medical with Rangers, and will soon be reporting to the club's training ground to begin his career with the Gers.

Capable of playing out wide or as an attacking midfielder, Forrester could be the man Rangers need to bring an added spark to the final third, whilst his history of working with Warburton should stand him in good stead once he completes his move.
