Rangers manager Ally McCoist has confirmed his interest in Queen of the South striker Nicky Clark.
The Light Blues boss has already held talks with the player's representative and his father, former Gers player and current Palmerston assistant Sandy, about a switch to Ibrox next season.
McCoist now hopes to meet with the player, who has netted an impressive 37 goals for the Irn-Bru Second Division champions this season, in the coming days
I've spoken to Nicky's agent and I've spoken to his father, who I know reasonably well, just to let them know that we have an interest in talking to Nicky and meeting up with him and seeing if there is a possibility of him coming to the club.
"We are no further down the line than that, but I spoke to Sandy and I'm very keen to meet up, as are Sandy and Nicky, so hopefully we can get a meeting in the next couple of days.
"His goalscoring record is fantastic and we certainly need strengthened in forward areas, as we do all over the park.
