Gabby Agbonlahor has tipped Jonson Clarke-Harris to snub a potential move to Sheffield United in favour of a switch to Rangers.

“With the chance of maybe playing in the Champions League next season. You back Steven Gerrard to get them through the qualifying stages and into the Champions League.

Clarke-Harris has scored 31 goals in 48 games across all competitions this season for Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough.

The Posh need just a point against third-place Lincoln City on Saturday to secure promotion to the Championship.
