Harry Forrester says he is "a winner" and made the move to Ibrox to start winning trophies.

Rangers moved one step closer to returning to the Scottish Premiership on Saturday as a 4-3 victory over Queen of the South took them to within two wins of promotion.

The action in a thrilling encounter at Ibrox was kickstarted by Harry Forrester's opening goal after 14 minutes, the 25-year-old's fourth strike in his last six matches for the club.

Forrester joined the Gers from Doncaster Rovers in January after two-and-a-half years with the Yorkshire side, making a return to Scottish football after a half-season on loan at Kilmarnock whilst playing as a youngster at Aston Villa.

The attacking midfielder explained to the club's official website that he chose to make the move to Glasgow to step up his career and start winning silverware after five years in the lower divisions of the Football League.

He told rangers.co.uk: "That’s why I joined this club. I took the deal here because I want to win silverware here.

"I love turning up at Ibrox and playing here and I hope that the fans can see that. I’m enjoying my football and I love to win. I’m a winner and to go out there and to keep winning is brilliant.

We are in a great position now and we need two more wins, but we’ll always take it one game at a time and we’ll look at the next one now. If we can win at Raith Rovers next week then get the win here at Ibrox to win the title then that would be lovely."

Rangers are 14 points clear of Falkirk with a game in hand at the top of the Scottish Championship, and victories against Raith and Dumbarton would see them secure the second-tier title before their crucial cup double-header in April.

Mark Warburton's side, who will return to the Scottish Premiership after a four-year absence, face Peterhead in the Challenge Cup final at Hampden Park on 10 April before a Scottish Cup semi-final clash with arch-rivals Celtic the following week.
