Callum Davidson says he’s ‘resigned’ himself to the fact that Rangers-linked goalkeeper Zander Clark won’t be staying at St Johnstone [Football Scotland].
Clark is out of contract at the end of the season and Saints have so far failed to get him to sign an extension.
Rangers were first linked with the 29-year-old by the Daily Record in November, but they aren’t the only club said to be interested.
It appears that Davidson believes Clark is more likely to swap St Johnstone for an English outfit than a fellow Scottish club, though.
“I’ve resigned myself to the fact Zander probably won’t be staying,” he said [Football Scotland]. “With his performance levels in big games and getting into the Scotland squad, there is always going to be interest in him.”
“But I’ve no doubts he’ll keep up his professionalism and performance levels. Zander has been the standout player for us this season and we expect him to keep performing like that. I have no worries about him at all.
“Over the last few seasons he’s got better every year. So if he goes to England to try his luck, everyone here would be happy for him.”
Rangers-linked Clark off to England?
It seems like Clark will have no shortage of offers to consider and it’s interesting that his manager believes he’ll soon be heading to England.
It’s unclear how strong Rangers’ interest is right now, given that they’ve also been linked with Dundee United’s Benjamin Siegrist in recent days [Daily Mail].
However, given that Clark grew up supporting the Gers, if they do table an offer, he’ll surely find it hard to turn down.
There will only be space for a new keeper if at least one of the current crop leave Ibrox in the summer, but Allan McGregor is expected to retire while Jon McLaughlin’s contract is running down.
