Martin O’Neill is set to be unveiled as the new manager of Nottingham Forest, which will have many Rangers fans wondering about the future of Joe Worrall.
We discussed last week the fears surrounding Worrall after Aitor Karanka left Forest by mutual consent. There are probably few worse appointments than O’Neill from a Rangers Worrall perspective.
But more than that, he hands his own side one too. The England U21 international is highly rated at the City Ground and has certainly improved under Steven Gerrard’s tutelage.
Joe Worrall could be an asset for Martin O’Neill
Martin O’Neill might walk into the City Ground, and on purely footballing reasons alone, decide Nottingham Forest need their hot prospect back. He also suits the combative style of football O’Neill tends to play.
If Worrall goes back to Forest, he’ll also need replaced. That takes money and in January – especially when clubs know that you need a player – prices can be extremely inflated.
There are also rumours of a no recall clause in Worrall’s loan agreement. This was echoed by club insider Four Lads Had a Dream, even if it was a little unconvincing.
Do you think Martin O’Neill will take Joe Worrall back to Nottingham Forest in this window?
And if he does, who should Rangers get in to replace him?
