Harry Forrester expects to face Celtic

Rangers star Harry Forrester expects to face Celtic in next week's Scottish Cup semi-final.

Harry Forrester has told Rangers' official website that he should be fit to face Celtic in next week's Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

Mark Warburton's side sealed their second trophy this week by beating Peterhead 4-0 at Hampden Park today to lift the Petrofac Training Cup, five days after edging out Dumbarton to win the Scottish Championship and promotion back to the big time.

An Alexander Gilchrist own goal sent the Gers on their way on 17 minutes, before James Tavernier, Andy Halliday and Kenny Miller added further efforts to win the trophy in style.

But there was some concern for Forrester, who was replaced by Billy King on 65 minutes after picking up a knock, but the 25-year-old midfielder expects to be fit for next week's return to Hampden for the clash with Celtic.

“I should be ok, my leg is a bit sore but I’ll be in again next week and we’ll go again," he responded to the club's site.


Forrester has netted five times in 16 appearances since joining the Glasgow giants and Warburton will certainly want to use him for the Old Firm clash, if he is available.
