Former Rangers striker Nicky Clark won’t be following Dundee United team-mate, Paul McMullan, in making the move to rivals Dundee after an ambitious move to lure Clark up Tannadice Street.
According to journalist Scott Burns on Twitter, Clark has knocked back the Championship side’s offer to make the short hop from Tannadice to Dens Park when his contract ends this summer.

The former Ibrox striker has scored eight times in the Premiership this term and scored 10 in all competitions for Micky Mellon’s side in their first season back in the top tier.
With his deal up at the end of the season he is free to talk about a move and Dundee wanted to make him the second Arab to make the switch.
Mellon has previously admitted that his side aren’t in a position to offer new contracts as they feel the pinch from the Coronavirus pandemic – although he did admit that could change, telling BT Sport: “I don’t think the club is in a position yet that it is wanting or able to give players contracts, or give Paul McMullan a contract.
“It might change with other players, that remains to be seen.”
During his three years at Ibrox, Clark made 110 appearances for Rangers, scoring 24 times and contributing 14 assists after moving to Rangers from Queen of the South.
After leaving the Gers, 2016, Clark moved south to join Bury but only stayed at Gigg Lane for a matter of weeks before returning to Scotland to join Dunfermline then making the switch to Tannadice.
Rangers and Dundee United were involved in an SPFL meeting on Wednesday and afterwards, the chairman of a fellow member club released a demand for ‘urgent’ change at the top of the Scottish game.
