On-loan Rangers defender Joe Worrall has told The Sun that he’ll be happy to return to Nottingham Forest in the summer.

The 22-year-old is on a season-long loan deal at Ibrox but it sounds unlikely that will be extended.

The defender wouldn’t commit to saying he wanted a longer spell at Ibrox – but didn’t rule it out either.

“Being on loan, it’s hard to say whether I want to stay,” Worrall said, as quoted by The Sun.

“If they want to buy me for £30m in the summer, fantastic!

“If not, I’ll be happy to go back to Forest.”

Worrall has finally started to find some form after a disappointing start to his time at Ibrox.


After an impressive Old Firm showing, he made a howler during the recent defeat to Kilmarnock.

Since then, he’s looked much more composed in defence and is starting to show why he is so highly-rated down south.

With Niko Katic looking for force his way into the side, there’s a ready-made replacement already at Ibrox.

Worrall has made 22 appearances for the Gers so far but has yet to score his first goal.

As the season nears its climax, Worrall would do his reputation no harm by helping the Gers to the title.

There’s no chance of Rangers coughing up the £30million fee he mentioned though.
