Rangers confirmed today that striker Nicky Clark will be released at the end of his contract this summer - and he has taken to Twitter to send a message to supporters.

The Gers are revamping their squad ahead of their return to the Scottish Premiership, and manager Mark Warburton has already snapped up four players, all of whom are midfielders; Matt Crooks, Josh Windass, Jordan Rossiter and the big name addition of Joey Barton.

Yet, with arrivals already secured - and more coming - Warburton must also let some players go too, and the club confirmed earlier today that three players will leave at the end of their contracts this summer.

Nicky Law, David Templeton and Nicky Clark have all been told that they will be released this summer, and striker Clark has taken to Twitter to react to the news.

The 24-year-old striker actually started his career at Rangers before spells with Aberdeen, Peterhead and Queen of the South, and rejoined Rangers in 2013.

With 22 goals in 90 games for Rangers, Clark contributed as something of a backup striker for the Gers, and he found first-team football hard to come by this term, with Warburton preferring to use Martyn Waghorn and Kenny Miller in attack.

Now, Clark has taken to Twitter to send a heartfelt message to fans, saying it was an honour to be part of the Rangers side which has risen up through the leagues, admitting he'll never forget the memories he made at Ibrox before thanking fans for their support.

Do you think Rangers were right to let Clark leave?
