Rangers boss Mark Warburton was happy with Nicky Clark's performance off the bench against Alloa Athletic yesterday and has dubbed the striker "quality".

Warburton brought Clark on as a substitute at Ibrox yesterday just past the hour mark, the striker getting the vote to replace winger Nathan Oduwa.

The score was already 3-0 to Rangers when he came on, but Clark was not to simply play out the remainder of the game and chipped in with a neat header in the 90th minute to make it 4-0.

Warburton feels given the gap between the third and fourth goals the Rangers fans showed genuine patience.

He told Rangers TV: "The crowd were very patient with us today, great support and backing, so it was good to get that fourth goal from Nicky."


And the Englishman went on to lavish praise on Clark, who he feels is a classy performer for the Gers.

"He’s worked hard, started the game last week, and he’s a quality player."

Clark, who spent time in the Rangers youth ranks earlier in his career before being released and linking up with Aberdeen, joined the Gers in 2013.

The 24-year-old has yet to win a Scotland cap, but will be hoping to catch the eye with his displays at Ibrox.
