Jonson Clarke-Harris would be an SPL superstar if he swapped the EFL for Rangers this summer.
That’s according to former Sunderland forward Kevin Phillips, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the future of the prolific Peterborough striker.
Clarke-Harris, 26, has 26 goals in 38 League One games for Posh this season as interest begins to mount ahead of the summer transfer window.
Last week, this site revealed that Rangers had sent scouts to watch Clarke-Harris as his hattrick helped to dismantle Accrington Stanley in an impressive 7-0 win.
Phillips insists that the forward has what it takes to succeed at Rangers if the Scottish giants make a move for the in-form attacker in the summer.
“He’s up there as the top goalscorer in that league now,” Phillips told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“He’s a lad that’s developed. He’s got better and better and he’s scoring goals for fun and again, it doesn’t matter what league you’re in when you know where the back of the net is.
“He’s in a team that creates chances and if he goes to Rangers he’ll be in another team that creates opportunities week in, week out.
“He’s a powerful lad as well. You could see that transfer working out. I don’t think he’d struggle up there, let’s put it that way.”
Clarke-Harris is the latest striker to find a deadly new level at London Road following the recent success of Championship top scorer Ivan Toney who now plays for Brentford.
Rangers have already secured the Scottish Premiership title but will look for further domestic success when they take on Scottish League One side Cove Rangers in the Scottish Cup on Sunday evening.
