According to the Daily Mail, Burton Albion have been linked with a move for Rangers’ versatile forward Harry Forrester, who is reportedly allowed to leave the Scottish side on a free transfer. Despite having two more years remaining on his current deal, reports claim that manager Pedro Caixinha has told the Englishman he is free to leave the club.
The 26-year-old has attracted a lot of interest from a variety of Football League clubs, such as League One duo Southend United and Charlton Athletic. The forward could be the next to depart the Ibrox Stadium, with Martyn Waghorn and Joe Garner joining Ipswich Town this window whilst Barrie McKay traded life in Scotland for Nottingham Forest.
In recent weeks, the relationship between Forrester and the club have been shaky, with a report from the Daily Record claiming that Caixinha told the left-winger to leave because of his ‘poor attitude’ in training. The source claims: “Harry didn’t have the best of training sessions on Sunday and the manager has clearly run out of patience with him.”
However, the 26-year-old was quick to shoot down the claim, revealing on his Twitter account: “rumours and reports that I have been suspended are totally false and inaccurate.”

Last season, the versatile forward featured on 21 occasions for the Gers in the Scottish Championship, scoring three goals and also providing two assists. Burton are reportedly hoping to pull off the signing in an attempt of bolstering their attacking options before the transfer window slams shut later into the month.
