Warburton hails ‘street footballer’ Forrester for winner

first_imgRangers manager Mark Warburton praised “street footballer” Harry Forrester after he scored a stoppage time winner against Dundee.The midfielder came off the bench to head home the only goal of the game from a Joe Dodoo cross giving the home side a 1-0 win.Forrester has struggled to hold down a first team place this season but Warburton highlighted the impact he made in the win over Dundee.Warburton said: “We had a strong bench attacking-wise and they made a difference, they added some energy and pace. I had no problems with the boys coming off, they were excellent. It’s just a case of variety. “Barrie McKay was out of the firing line for a couple of weeks and was keen to make an impression.“Harry has probably been below his level in training for a few weeks, but he has picked it up the last couple of weeks and I’m delighted for him.”Warburton, who worked with the wide player at Watford, added: “Harry’s a street footballer. We had him as a kid, 13,14 ,15-year-old. We used to have academy games that were 20-a-side and Harry was the one who wanted the ball and to make an impact.“He has had a few injury niggles and we have to get the fitness level right to maintain that level of performance. “Harry won’t be pleased to hear that remark, but it’s probably right, he is a very effective sub, but we will make sure Harry can deliver a 90-minute performance.”last_img read more
