Ex-Rangers Winger Harry Forrester Signs For American Second-Tier Side Orange County

Ex-Rangers Winger Harry Forrester Signs For American Second-Tier Side Orange County

Former Rangers winger Harry Forrester has decided to continue his career in American soccer after putting pen-to-paper on a deal with USL Championship side Orange County SC.

After a short stint in Iran with Tractor Sazi, Forrester would’ve been forgiven for looking for a move back to British football, but the midfielder, who turned 28 earlier this month, has taken the plunge and decided to move to the States.

Orange County unveiled the signing of Forrester on their social media channels earlier this evening, with their website revealing he’d agreed to join ‘for the 2019 season’, but it remains to be seen exactly how long his contract lasts.

Forrester was highly-rated as a pacey wide-man when he was signed by former Gers boss Mark Warburton, but his potential never really developed into anything tangible, and he was sent on-loan to Wimbledon.

He scored 8 goals in 44 appearances whilst at Ibrox but he lost a lot of supporters’ faith when he failed to square an easy ball to Joe Dodoo in the final moments of a crucial Old Firm game.

What do you think of his move?
