HARRY FORRESTER was naturally thrilled after grabbing a stunning late winner for Rangers against Dundee this afternoon.
With the game deep in injury time and Gers looking as if they would be held at home again, Forrester popped up with an unorthodox but perfect backward header on a Joe Dodoo cross to send Ibrox wild with delight.
Speaking afterwards to RangersTV.tv, he explained: “It’s always a great feeling to get a late goal, and I think it was just rewards for the efforts the boys put in all afternoon.
“We controlled the game in the first half without ever really breaking them down, and to get the goal so late was brilliant for everyone, but I think it was what we deserved.
“Joe has cut back onto his right and I knew in my head I had to get something on it for it to go in. The ball didn’t have a lot of pace on it but luckily I turned around and it had gone in, and at the time I wasn’t even sure if it was off me or someone else!
“There was a lot of relief there, and obviously I’ve not played a lot of late, but the boys did great all afternoon. The three subs – Barrie [McKay], Joe and I were all sent on to impact the game, and luckily I was able to do that. I thought we did well all afternoon and to get the three points was lovely.”
Dundee have proved to be a lucky team for Forrester with him netting on all three occasions he has faced them as a Ranger, but he was at a loss to explain his excellent form against the side from the City of Discovery.
He added: “I don’t really know what it is! People go through their careers and have a team that they always seem to score against or play well against. Dundee seems to be a favourite for me and long may it continue.”
