Warburton confirms Gers are close to new signing, Harry Forrester undergoing medical today

Rangers FC

Mark Warburton has confirmed that Harry Forrester is close to joining Rangers.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told Sky Sports that Doncaster ace Harry Forrester is close to completing a move to Ibrox.

Forrester, 24, is currently playing in League One with Doncaster Rovers, but has struggled for first team football under Darren Ferguson.

A departure has looked inevitable, and now it seems that the former Aston Villa youngsters is poised to make the move north of the border imminently.

HITC broke the news earlier this week, stating that Forrester was closing in on a move to Rangers, whilst the Daily Record suggested on Wednesday that the wide man has travelled up to Glasgow in order to complete a medical.

Now, manager Warburton has been asked about the situation, and told Sky Sports that Forrester is having his medical today, having trained with the rest of the squad.

Warburton also noted how he knows Warburton well from their time together at Watford, whilst they were also at Brentford together, making this another reunion between the pair.

"I know Harry very well, I know him from Watford," said Warburton. "We are working with Doncaster, who are being tremendous with us in that respect. Harry is in having a medical today and we will see how that one progresses."

"He has the quality on the pitch, that is very evident. Off the pitch he's a good lad and gets on well with the boys in the dressing room. He will add some quality to our squad," he added.

Primarily a left winger who cuts inside on his right foot, Forrester will certainly add some quality to the Rangers front line, whilst his prior relationship with manager Warburton will stand him in good stead at Ibrox.

Ranger fans will be looking for Warburton to make a couple more additions in January, but landing Forrester is a great start to the transfer window, with the deal expected to go through imminently.
