Rangers fans haven’t had much to cheer this season, with the Glasgow giants once again trailing in the wake of fierce rivals Celtic in the race for the SPL title.
Former boss Pedro Caixinha was given the boot for a poor run of form, with Graeme Murty the latest man to be tasked with ensuring the good times return to Ibrox. Fans here in The Transfer Tavern remain an optimistic bunch, and are confident that their side will once again challenge Celtic on all fronts for silverware within the Scottish game. Expectant of a big month in the transfer window, fans have been boosted by the return of a loan man, with Harry Forrester back at the club following a spell with AFC Wimbledon in League One.
The 27-year-old spent the first half of the year playing regularly for the South London side, and reports from The Scottish Sun today suggest that the winger is desperate for another chance to prove himself at Ibrox. Forrester enjoyed a fantastic spell in League One at Brentford a few years back, with the tricky player often unplayable under Mark Warburton at Griffin Park. Should he return to form in Glasgow, Rangers could have a star on their hands once again.
Landlord’s Verdict: On his day Forrester is a phenomenal player, and his spell with AFC Wimbledon has been a success to date. Now back at Ibrox and under contract until 2019, the player must prove to Murty that he has what it takes to succeed at the club, and must get his head down and break back into the side in the coming weeks and months.
If Murty can draw the best from Forrester, Rangers will be a much improved side, and the winger could prove to himself and others that his time north of the border was not wasted.
