As reported by The Daily Record, Pedro Caixinha has banished Rangers midfielder Harry Forrester from first-team training, also advising him to find a new club.
It’s a particularly bold action but a sign that the manager is stamping his authority on his new look squad at Auchenhowie.
It’s not clear why the midfielder has been sent packing but The Daily Record report that it came after a workout and that the 26 year old had previously been sent away from training due to Caixinha being unimpressed with his attitude.
Rangers have a summer of hard work ahead if they’re to start to close the gap on Celtic and it’s clear the Portuguese is determined to get them there, even if it means laying down the law for players he feels aren’t keeping up.
The move hasn’t really come as a surprise to Light Blues fans who feel like Forrester is wasting his talent. They’re also enjoying the way Caixinha is setting standards at the club.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the situation…
Harry Forrester is what Josh Windass will be in a few years. A lazy spice-boy stealing a living from whatever club is employing him.

Harry Forrester will have a lot of regrets when he looks back on his career. Has the talent but his attitude is obviously horrendous. Bye ????????

Harry Forrester is a silly lad. A clearly talented player it seems his attitude doesn't match. Compare & contrast with Kranjcar's efforts.

Harry Forrester would've never made it at Rangers. He was scottish championship level. He's exactly the type of player we dont need

Harry Forrester has the talent to be a player for us and go far in his career but he's ruining it by his attitude, silly silly boy
