New Rangers signing Harry Forrester wants a long-term stay at Ibrox.

New Rangers signing Harry Forrester has told the club's official website that he wants to stay with the club for longer than six months.

Forrester, 24, has struggled for first-team football under Darren Ferguson at Doncaster Rovers this season, and has now left the club to reunite with Rangers boss Warburton.

A former Aston Villa youth star, Forrester worked with Gers manager Warburton at both Watford and Brentford, and now the two have reunited once again.

Rangers confirmed on their official website on Thursday afternoon that Forrester has signed an initial six-month contract with the club, meaning he will be available for the rest of the season as Rangers chase promotion to the Scottish Championship.

Forrester can play as an attacking midfielder or as a left winger, cutting inside on to his right foot, and should provide a real boost for Rangers in the final third.

Now, Forrester has told the club's official website that he thinks Rangers are one of the biggest clubs in Europe, and he is relishing the chance to reunite with Warburton.

Forrester also claims that whilst his contract is for just six months, he already wants to make that deal longer, but knows that will only happen by proving his worth in Glasgow.

"This move huge for me," said Forrester. "This is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I am privileged to be here and privileged to put on the shirt, and I want now to show people what I can do on the field. It’s only a six month deal as we speak, but hopefully I can get on the pitch and show everyone what I can do and we’ll talk from there.

"I’ve known Mark a long time and I know how he works, likewise he knows about me as well. The last few months at my old club haven’t gone too well, but I know Mark believes in me and I’m coming up here to prove him right. Like I say, it’s only six months but I want to be here a lot longer than just six months," he added.
