Rangers hopes of keeping Joe Worrall given boost

Rangers will be desperate to secure all three points against Dundee on Sunday, as this would help pile the pressure back on the likes of Celtic and Kilmarnock.

The Bluenoses have managed to get the best out of a number of their summer signings in the current campaign, so they’ll be looking to bringing in another couple of quality additions in January. And, they received a big boost in terms of holding onto one of their loan signings in January, as according to the Daily Record, Nottingham Forest managed Aitor Karanka has said that he won’t recall Joe Worrall unless he has to.

Steven Gerrard’s hopes of keeping loan star Joe Worrall at Ibrox beyond January have been given a boost after Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka said he won’t recall him unless he has to.

English Championship side Nottingham Forest are currently struggling for cover at the heart of the defence at this moment in time due to a number of injuries.

Here’s what Karanka had to say about Worrall’s immediate future:

“I think we need to be calm. It is normal to speak about Joe in this situation, because we do not have many (available) central defenders.

“There are clauses in his contract. But he is playing, he is happy and his manager is happy with him. Let’s see what happens in the following weeks.”


Joe Worrall has been influential for the Bluenoses this season as one of their standout performers at the heart of the defence. Aitor Karanka clearly sees that the defenders is happy and developing at Rangers, so he could be set to stay beyond January.

This comes as a big boost for Rangers as Karanka will only think about recalling the Englishman if he has to, so the Bluenoses can now head into the January transfer window without worrying about signing another central defender.
