Scott Burns of The Daily Express is reporting that Rangers forward Nicky Clark may be the next player to leave the club. Supposedly, Notts County have made inquiries to secure Clark on a loan deal for the rest of the season. The English League One side is currently scrapping for a play-off spot.
After a strong start to the season, Clark has been brushed aside for the likes of Kenny Miller & Jon Daly. Ironically enough, besides Nicky Law, no other Rangers player has scored more league goals this season. Of course, the tally is only four – but Miller has the same amount of goals in roughly 400 more minutes, while Kris Boyd has a putrid total of two goals in 1200+ minutes. You could also argue that even though Boyd wasn’t scoring, his play was much more effective when he played alongside Clark & has been quite poor while playing with Miller.
Regardless, Clark has fallen out of favor with Rangers management & has only made two starts in the past 13 matches. The 23-year old may be faced with a scenario in which he just may have to leave to see regular first team play.
Another curious tidbit from Burns’ report was that Hibs actually put in a bid to sign Clark last week but were turned down by Rangers. Good thing too because his quickness & work rate would fit right into Alan Stubb’s vision for the team.
