Report: Rangers striker Nicky Clark could leave Ibrox tonight after contact from Livingston

Livingston have reportedly enquired about signing Rangers striker Nicky Clark.

According to the Daily Record's deadline day blog, as posted at 18:44, Livingston have enquired about signing Rangers striker Nicky Clark.

Clark, 24, started his career with Rangers before being allowed to leave at the age of 15. A move to Aberdeen followed, but again he was released in 2009, and he had to rebuild his career from the bottom.

After eight goals in 50 games for Peterhead, Clark moved on to Queen of the South, and sparked into life with 42 goals in 82 games, before earning a dream move back to Rangers.

Clark's record with the Gers stands at 23 goals in 94 games, and his role at Ibrox has been reduced since the arrival of Martyn Waghorn in the summer.

Now, after Rangers signed another forward today in Michael O'Halloran, Clark appears to be fourth choice behind Waghorn, O'Halloran and Kenny Miller, and a departure could be on the cards before the deadline.

The Daily Record report that Livingston have asked Rangers if they can take Clark on loan for the rest of the season as they battle against relegation from the Scottish Championship.

There isn't long left in the transfer window, and the two clubs will have to come to a quick agreement if Clark is to join Livingston this evening in a deal which would see the striker play more first-team football.
