Rob Jones backs recent Rangers signing Harry Forrester for Ibrox success after incredible week

Former Hibernian defender Rob Jones has hailed Rangers ace Harry Forrester.

Hartlepool defender Rob Jones has told The Scottish Sun that he thinks Rangers midfielder Harry Forrester will show fans he can do if given a long-term chance.

Forrester, 25, left Doncaster Rovers in January in order to sign for Rangers, reuniting with Gers boss Mark Warburton, having worked together at both Watford and Brentford.

Early into Forrester's time at Ibrox, the former Aston Villa youngster struggled to make a real impact in Glasgow, as he was limited to substitute appearances whilst he built up his fitness.

This week though, Forrester has come to life. The vital winning goal against St. Mirren handed Rangers all three points with a last gasp strike, and he followed that up with another superb goal in midweek, this time opening the scoring against Raith Rovers in a 2-0 victory.

There is renewed optimism about Forrester's chances of success at Rangers, and he certainly needs to impress given that his contract expires this summer.

Now, Forrester's ex-Doncaster team-mate Rob Jones - formerly of Rangers' rivals Hibernian - has given his views on Forrester to The Scottish Sun.

Jones suggests that injuries have held Forrester back in recent years, and if he gets a real run of first-team football, he will enjoy success at Ibrox, bringing 'a lot to the field' when he is at his best.

"Harry’s had a couple of years in and out of the team with niggling injuries. When he gets a run of games, he will show what he can do," said Jones. "With a new club, environment and surroundings, he can enjoy a fresh start. When he is on form he brings a lot to the field," he added.

Do you think Forrester will be a long-term success at Rangers?
