A leading Rangers insider has rubbished the suggestion that Peterborough United forward Jonson Clarke Harris is on the club’s radar as links reappeared in the press this week.
The Gers were first mentioned alongside the 27-year-old striker in March by Posh sporting director Barry Fry who namedropped Rangers alongside a host of other sides [Peterborough Telegraph].
Clarke Harris enjoyed an impressive season in the English third tier last campaign, netting 33 goals for the club in total and firing Peterborough to promotion to the Championship.
Back then the suggestion was that Clarke-Harris would cost potential suitors five times the £1m Peterborough spent on the striker, who was signed from Bristol Rovers to replace Ivan Toney.
The Daily Record then ran a report this week claiming that Jonson Clarke Harris would be interested in a move to Rangers amid links to a host of other clubs.
The Record mentions Rangers alongside the likes of Bournemouth, Sheffield United, West Brom and CSKA Moscow as potential suitors for the striker.
However, leading Rangers insider Heart & Hand have claimed that the player is not on the Gers’ “radar” this summer.

“There’s nothing in this I believe,” tweets the H&H Twitter account. “Not on Rangers radar.”
This news comes after much speculation regarding the future of Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.
The Gers are currently well stocked up front with Alfie supplemented by Kemar Roofe, Cedric Itten and Jermain Defoe.
However, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard could not confirm if Alfie would be at the club next season amid links to Portuguese giants FC Porto.
The Ibrox gaffer cut a frustrated figure when pressed on the 25-year-old’s future with the sounds coming out of the Rangers Training Centre ominous heading into the new season.
