Former Rangers midfielder Charlie McCann has broken his silence after moving to Forest Green in English League One in the hunt for first-team football.

The 20-year-old ex-Man Utd talent had broken through into the team at Rangers, making eight appearances for the club after joining from the Old Trafford club in 2021.

But with competition fierce in the middle of the park – and the likes of Todd Cantwell being added in January – Charlie McCann has chosen to leave for Forest Green in the hunt for first-team football.

Speaking to the League One club’s official media, McCann is clearly very excited to get started and start playing first-team football.

“It feels great to have signed,” said Charlie McCann [FGFC].

“I’m delighted to get it over the line and I can’t wait to get started.

“Hopefully I can start getting minutes under my belt very soon.”

Charlie McCann moves to Forest Green

Charlie McCann will also have his work cut out at Forest Green, with the League One side in the midst of a relegation battle and rooted to the bottom of the English third tier.

The club are only four points from safety and will be hoping the addition of the Rangers midfielder makes a huge difference to their league campaign.

Rangers have also taken to social media to confirm the Charlie McCann exit, whilst congratulating the player on his move.

According to reports, Rangers will recoup £350k for the midfielder with McCann turning down a new contract at Ibrox ahead of leaving the club.

Rangers supporters will retain a keen interest in the progress of Charlie McCann at Forest Green and may be left thinking what might’ve been if the Northern Irish midfielder goes on to prosper.

But whatever the case you have to admire the kid’s bravery in pushing for this switch and let’s hope it works out for McCann south of the border.

Meanwhile, Todd Cantwell has just embraced a 50-year first at Rangers.
