Nicky Clark is still in dreamland after his injury-time winner against Kilmarnock.

Rangers striker Nicky Clark has told RangersTV that he is still on cloud nine after grabbing his chance in the limelight by hitting a last-gasp winner against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup on Tuesday night.

The 24-year-old came on as an early substitute for the injured Martyn Waghorn and waited until right at the death to make his telling contribution, netting the decisive goal in added time as the runaway Scottish Championship leaders beat the SPL strugglers.

For Clark, who has frequently appeared as a subsitute during his time at Ibrox since joining the club in 2013, it was a moment to savour.

He told the club's TV channel: "It's right up there with my best moments so far.

"It was unfortunate that Waggy got injured but it was my chance; I had to come on and do well and I felt I did all right. And getting the goal to win the game was the most important thing.

"I took a chance to get across the front post and luckily enough wee Baz [Barry McKay] put it in the right area and I caught it well."

Clark's winner ensured that Rangers set up a home quarter-final clash with either Dundee or Dumbarton as the Glasgow club look to reach the last the last four of the competition for just the second time since 2009.

Mark Warburton's side are eight points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship, although they have played a game more than second-placed Hibernian.
