Reported summer Rangers target Lyle Taylor has finally reached a decision on his new club as the striker signs for Championship Nottingham Forest.

The outspoken forward came under fire for refusing to play in Charltonโ€™s final few matches of the season after the restart, with the Addicks eventually being relegated.

Taylor, 30, had said he didnโ€™t want to risk injury and scuppering a โ€œlife-changing moveโ€ elsewhere.

Now the striker will play at the same level he did last season in the English Championship as Nottingham Forest look to build on a disappointing 7th placed finish last season.

The former European Cup winners collapsed in the final furlong of the season and missed out on a playoff place.

Rangers have been almost continuously linked to Taylor all year with the striker most recently linked to Ibrox as early as July [Daily Record].

After Rangers snapped up Anderlecht striker Kemar Roofe and Swiss international Cedric Itten reports appeared to quieten down.

Old Firm rivals Celtic were most recently linked to Taylor in early August by Sky Sports, but the striker has now made up his mind on his future.

The striker has played for the likes of Bournemouth, Sheffield United and AFC Wimbledon down south whilst also turning out for both Falkirk and Partick Thistle in Scotland.

An international with the Monserrat national team, Taylor scored 11 goals for Charlton last season.
