Rangers fan favourite Harry Forrester provides fitness update on Twitter

Rangers ace Harry Forrester is desperately trying to come back from injury.

Rangers star Harry Forrester has taken to Twitter to admit that 'the race is on' to play for the Gers in their Scottish Cup final clash with Hibernian.

Forrester, 25, joined Rangers from Doncaster Rovers having slipped out of favour under Darren Ferguson, and his move to Ibrox was seen as the perfect solution for Forrester, given that he reunited with Mark Warburton.

The Gers boss worked with Forrester at both Watford and Brentford, and whilst it took a while for the attacking midfielder to settle in at Rangers, he has now become a firm fan favourite in the blue half of Glasgow.

With five goals in his last nine games, Forrester has hit a great run of form for Rangers, but suffered a hairline fracture in his leg during the 4-0 win over Dumbarton in the Petrofac Training Cup final earlier this month.

That meant that the former Aston Villa youngster missed out on the biggest game of the season, as Rangers beat Old Firm rivals Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final without Forrester being available.

Now, the focus for Forrester is on being fit to face Hibernian in the final, in just over a month's time - and he took to Twitter today to offer an update on his recovery.

Forrester revealed that he had a good day in the gym as he looks to build up his fitness, and admitted that he is crossing his fingers in his race to be fit for the Scottish Cup final.

Do you think Forrester will be fit to face Hibernian?
