Clark - Goals will come

Rangers forward Nicky Clark is not worried about his lack of goals so far this season but is keen to see his name on the scoresheet more often in the coming weeks.

The 22-year-old has netted just twice for his new club since making the move to Ibrox in the summer, having scored more than 40 goals last season in the same division with Queen of the South.

Clark is happy with his overall displays at the moment, though, and is confident of adding to his tally.

He said: "You always want more. I've scored two so far and I would like to score more but I'm not really getting worried about it.

"I know they will come. I just want to keep playing the way I'm playing just now. I feel as though I'm playing well and the goals will eventually come."

Clark does not feel any pressure to live up to last year's standards, insisting it was a unique campaign.

He added: "Last year was exceptional. It's a new season so I just need to keep my head down and work hard and hopefully score a few more.

"I've played in the last few games and I feel as though I've been playing well with big Jon Daly.

"I'm really enjoying it. He's scoring a lot of goals just now and hopefully that continues on Monday night."

Next up for Rangers is the Scottish League One clash with Arbroath at Gayfield, where they are likely to be confronted with a bracing wind coming in from the sea.

Clark said: "We have been talking about the game. It's an interesting one but we are ready for it.

"I played up there twice last year. It wasn't a Monday night, to be fair, it was just a Saturday afternoon, but the wind was still quite high during the day.

"It changes things a bit, especially with the goal-kicks. When the goalie tries to kick it out, it doesn't really go anywhere because of the wind. We need to be ready for it."

Arbroath took the lead at Ibrox before eventually losing 5-1 the last time the sides met.

Asked if they will be out for revenge, Clark said: "They probably will be. They will be up for it.

"Every team is when they play against Rangers. Everyone here is looking forward to it."

Arbroath could be without the injured Ricky Little (foot) and Connor Birse (knee) again.
