Rangers reportedly want 29-year-old, who was told he is better than £15k-a-week Celtic star earlier this season
Rangers are reportedly monitoring St. Johnstone stopper Zander Clark – and his old boss Steve Lomas recently said he is better than Celtic’s Joe Hart.
Clark, 29, is out of contract at the end of the season. He could be available on a free transfer and that has attracted the interest of Rangers.
The Gers just announced losses, north of £20million. It means that they might be limited on funds in the window, making Clark a needed signing.
Indeed, Rangers could be in need of a goalkeeper with Allan McGregor in a similar position to Clark – his contract ends in June, but he could retire.
Lomas, who managed Clark between 2011 and 2013, recently told The Sun that Clark is better than anything Celtic have, after the Hoops signed Hart.
“There’s no doubt Zander is better than what’s at Celtic, in my opinion, from what I’ve saw, keeping an eye on it,” Clark said, speaking in October.
Is Clark really better than Celtic ace Hart, as Rangers eye move?
Hart has sparkled for Celtic since joining the club from Tottenham, penning a deal until June 2024. He has kept 10 clean sheets in 22 games.
But is Clark better than the £15,000-a-week (Romano) Celtic goalkeeper? Is he showing more than a player with 75 England caps to his name?
Clark is excellent, he is probably in the form of his life and is excellent from the penalty spot. But surely, Hart’s experience makes him the better option.
But the difference is small and with Clark five years younger than Hart, and available for nothing, he would be a brilliant addition for Rangers.
