Rangers midfielder explains why he joined Gers, outlines his ambition

Rangers attacking midfielder Harry Forrester wants to help the Gers get promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

Harry Forrester has explained to The Glasgow Evening Times why he joined Rangers in December.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder switched to Rangers from Doncaster Rovers and has a contract until the end of the season.

The former Brentford man has revealed that he rejected offers from clubs in England in order to move to the Gers.

Forrester has also stated that he is determined to help Rangers gain promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

“I would love to be able to say I had played a part in Rangers getting to the Premiership,” the Englishman told The Glasgow Evening Times. “That is why I came here.

“You become a footballer because you want success. There were options in England for me, but there was no success there. That’s what I have here.

“So I took a short-term deal because maybe I could help get Rangers back to the Premiership, which is huge. If that happens, then it will live with me forever. “

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 66 points from 26 matches.

The Gers are as many as 11 points clear of Hibernian, who are currently second in the standings.

The Glasgow giants look set to win the league title this season and gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Forrester will be looking to show his quality in the final weeks of the season in order to earn a long-term contract with Rangers.
