Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has explained to The Daily Record his decision to sign Joe Worrall on loan from Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window.

Ibrox club Rangers signed Worrall on a season-long loan deal from Forest in the Championship in England in the summer.

Liverpool legend Gerrard, who was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer, has explained why he brought the 21-year-old defender to Ibrox.

The England Under-21 international has played five times in the Scottish Premiership, thrice in the Europa League, and twice in the Scottish League Cup, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

Gerrard told The Daily Record: “Joe was an opportunity, I was aware of him and we were looking for a player who could play on the left side as well.”

Meanwhile, Wigan Athletic attacker Josh Windass has revealed when he knew that Pedro Caixinha was not going to last long as the Rangers manager.

The 24-year-old, who can operate as a midfielder or as a forward, has said that when Caixinha denied Joe Garner - who is now at Wigan - permission to go Las Vegas on his bachelor’s party, he knew that the Portuguese could not last long as the Rangers manager.

The Scottish Sun quotes Windass as saying: “I think he had paid like £30,000 for all of his mates. Pedro said ‘I don’t care, you come and train’ and he comes down and all the lads are pissing themselves, but he’s fuming, absolutely fuming.

“He comes in, cancels his stag do and goes to Ibiza for three days instead. After that, I was thinking he’s not going to be here after next season 100 per cent.”
