Joe Worrall credits his experience at Rangers for him becoming a better player now that he’s back at parent club Nottingham Forrest.

The defender claims he was the ‘complete player’ at Ibrox where he made 32 appearances in his season-long loan.

The 22-year-old was part of an excellent Forest side that walked away with a 2-1 victory over Luton at the weekend, a match that was played in the pouring rain.

Worrall claimed his ability to play under those conditions goes back to how he was trained at Ibrox.

He said: “I was used to the rain last year. And backs-to-the-wall defending is second nature to me.

“We’ve got intelligent football players and lots of leaders out there, so we know we can pull through games like these.

“I thought I was the complete player last season.

"But then you realise that spending a year away from the demands of the Championship, you might need that time away to look at it like an outsider.

“But I enjoyed my time up there and I’ve come back a much better player. I couldn’t have got a better loan.

“Now I’m back where I belong, so I’m really happy at the moment.

“If any other lad gets an opportunity to go up there I’d recommend it – it’s crazy.

"Especially if you can get a loan to dip your toe into it then come back to your parent club.”
