Rangers are ready to offer Harry Forrester a new contract, says Ibrox club’s manager Mark Warburton.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Daily Mail that Harry Forrester is set to earn a new contract.

The 25-year-old winger joined Rangers in the January transfer window on a contract that runs until the end of the season.

Forrester, who can also play as an attacking midfielder, has been in good form in recent weeks and has also been among the goals.

Warburton has revealed that discussions over a new contract are going on, and has suggested that he is hopeful that the former Brentford and Doncaster Rovers man will commit his long-term future to Rangers soon.

“Harry has been in and we are talking to the agent,” the Rangers boss told The Daily Mail. “Touch wood, that will be completed very soon.

“I know Harry. I said right at the start that he was trying too hard because he needs to impress. He just needs to be somewhere where he is settled and knows he is going to get football.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment and can win the title as early as this weekend.

If Warburton’s side win against Raith Rovers away from home at Stark's Park next weekend and Hibernian fail to pick up all three points against St Mirren at St Mirren Park, then the Gers will clinch the Scottish Championship title.

The Glasgow giants have been the best team in the league, and it seems that Warburton is already planning for next season.

Forrester is a good player and has proved that he is capable of playing for Rangers, and it makes sense for him to get a new contract.
