Rangers signing Harry Forrester trained with former Netherlands international duo Frank de Boer and Dennis Bergkamp at Ajax a few years ago.

Rangers attacking midfielder Harry Forrester has revealed to The Scottish Sun the impact training with Frank de Boer and Dennis Bergkamp had on him.

De Boer and Bergkamp are two of the greatest Dutch players of all time and enjoyed successful careers.

While De Boer played for Ajax and Barcelona among other clubs, Bergkamp enjoyed huge success with Arsenal and is regarded as one of the best players to have ever featured in the Premier League.

Forrester, who joined Rangers on a six-month loan deal from Doncaster Rovers last week, has revealed that he trained with the Dutch duo at Ajax before deciding to join Brentford in the summer of 2011.

“I trained with Frank de Boer and Dennis Bergkamp a couple of times and they both gave me some good advice,” the 24-year-old attacking midfielder has told The Scottish Sun. “Speaking and training with people like that gave me a lot of confidence.

“But I spoke to people at Brentford I knew and I really bought into the project. It was best for my career to stay in England with Brentford at the time.”

Forrester has worked with current Rangers manager Mark Warburton at Watford and Brentford.

The attacking midfielder is a good player and scored one goal in nine appearances for Doncaster this season before moving to the Gers.

The former Aston Villa prospect will be looking to establish himself in the Rangers first team in the coming weeks.
