HARRY FORRESTER was over the moon to score his first goal for Rangers against St Mirren and secure three massive Championship points for his side in the process.
The super sub had the impact manager Mark Warburton wanted from his January signing when he curled a fabulous shot beyond Buddies keeper Jamie Langfield in the 87th minute to give his side a crucial 1-0 victory.
With second placed Hibernian losing 3-2 at Dumbarton, Forrester’s goal could turn out to be a pivotal moment in the title race and he couldn’t hide his delight when speaking to RangersTV.tv after the final whistle.
When asked how it felt to score, he replied: “Yeah, unbelievable. The gaffer said to me ‘go on and make an impact’ and get into positions where I can hopefully score.
“I’ve gone in the box and it was a great square by Mikey and luckily it has hit the back of the net.
“I was thinking ‘just hit the target’ because since I’ve come here I’ve been in good positions and I’ve maybe been a bit eager to score and to get off the mark.
“But it’s come across and I just thought ‘hit the target and make the keeper work’ and when it hit the back of the net I was delighted.”
A packed Ibrox erupted when the ball nestled in the top corner of the net and and they celebrated with Forrester as he slid on his knees in front of the Copland Stand.
On that moment, he said: “It was unbelievable. The noise was electric and that’s why you play football, for them moments.
“That’s why I joined and that will live long in my memory. Hopefully there are many more to come.”
Having now opened his account for the Light Blues, Harry hopes more goals will come his way as Gers target silverware from now until May.
He added: “I spoke to the gaffer in the week and I’ve maybe been a bit eager to get that first goal.
“I’ve hit the post and probably should have got my first goal there, but it’s come now and hopefully I can kick on and start finding the net more regularly.”
