Former Rangers star Joe Worrall may have had a mixed loan spell in Govan, but still likes to remind Nottingham Forrest teammate Scott McKenna of the moment he got the better of his former rival's team.

The towering defender scored in a 1-1 draw in a Scottish Cup quarter final clash at Pittodrie but his team were sent spinning out of the competition in the Ibrox replay.

It was one of SEVEN games between the Dons and Steven Gerrard 's side that season as Derek McInnes' side caused no end of problems in cup competitions, also winning a League Cup semi-final at Hampden.

And McKenna, who moved to the Championship from the Dons in the summer, reckons his teammate has come on leaps and bounds since his time under Gerrard.

Speaking to FLW, McKenna said: “I think we played Rangers about seven times that season. He tries to be chirpy about the fact he scored against Aberdeen, too.

“I think he had a good season at Rangers, though. They’re obviously not as strong a team as they are this season, and I think that’s down to a lot of pressure the fans put on them. It must have been difficult for everyone involved in those Rangers teams.

“I thought he did well, and ever since he’s come back down to Forest, he’s kicked on and been a mainstay in the team ever since.

“He’s not a player who I really knew about when he came Rangers to be honest. I didn’t really pay attention to him as I was more focused on my teammates.

“But from the Joe Worrall who was at Rangers then and at Forest now, he’s a far better player.”
