Journalist Joshua Barrie, who has featured on Sky Sports News, has said that Rangers are yet to make contact with PAOK regarding striker Antonio Colak.

Speaking on the Rangers Review YouTube channel, Barrie was discussing a potential transfer amid reports from the Daily Record linking the Gers with the striker.

It is believed that the frontman’s current employers are looking to offload the Croatian after he failed to nail down a regular starting berth in the side following his loan spell with Malmo, where he incidentally scored twice against the Ibrox club in a Champions League qualifier.

The Scottish outlet relayed a claim made by Politic, which stated that the Greek club turned down an opening bid for the forward as they failed to meet the £1.7m valuation for Colak, who is contracted until 2024.

However, Barrie has said that the club are yet to reach out, although they could be plotting a potential swoop.

Do Rangers need another striker?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He said: “I’m told that there has not been any contact at the moment, but he is a type of player that Rangers would have an interest in. Obviously, if you look at him, he fits the mould of forward that Van Bronckhorst would like at Ibrox.

“No contact, I’m told, at the moment, but maybe one to watch.”

How well do you remember where Rangers' signings came in from down the years? Take our quiz to find out! First up, Carlos Pena was the Gers' most expensive arrival during the summer of 2017, but where did he join from?

Before making the move to PAOK in 2020, the 28-year-old scored 51 times in 90 appearances and produced 15 assists for HNK Rijeka in his home country.

He also managed to net five goals in eight Champions League qualifiers and would provide Giovanni van Bronckhorst with a real headache when it comes to choosing his first-choice striker, as his goal record suggests he could challenge Alfredo Morelos for a starting place.

With the Gers looking to snatch the title back from Celtic this coming season, some more firepower up top could yet make all the difference.
