Rangers could be about to sign League One top scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris at a bargain price. 

That is according to ex-Scottish Premiership forward Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively to Football Insider amid the striker’s blister-hot run of form.

Clarke-Harris has netted five goals in his last four appearances for Peterborough, taking his tally in the league to 27.

This site revealed in March that Rangers sent scouts to watch the 26-year-old ahead of a potential swoop. 

Whelan claims the Scottish Premiership champions are on to a winner with the former Bristol Rovers striker and could sign him for a minimal fee.

“He could thrive at Rangers next season,” he told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“I think when you’re looking at players like him, they’ve been on the verge of moving to other clubs before now but no one’s really managed to take that plunge.

“I think the scouts will always be monitoring players in those divisions. If you’re a goalscorer, you’re a goalscorer.

“If you’re doing it at a League One club, you may very well do it at a big club like Rangers where you’re getting more service and more quality alongside.

“It could be a really good partnership and they would probably get him at a really good price given that he’s not the most well-known player.”

Rangers may need to move for a striker in the summer with Alfredo Morelos’ Ibrox future still up in the air.
