Lee Clark victim of false rumours again

last updated Tuesday 08th January 2002, 11:11 AM
Lee Clark's agent says the player will not be moving to Rangers.

Clark was quoted as being in talks with the Scottish outfit.

But agent Paul Stretford said Clark had not spoken to the Press and rumours of a move were wide of the mark.

He said: "There has been no contact between the clubs - and Lee only signed a new long-term contract at Fulham in the summer.

"I would like to state unequivocally that Lee has not spoken to anyone in the media and given any quotes with reference to Rangers, his future at Fulham or any topic regarding his career."

Former Newcastle and Sunderland star Clark was reported as saying: "The first I heard about Rangers' interest was at the end of last week. Talks are continuing at the moment and I hope everything will be sorted out by the end of the week.

"I have a problem with my Achilles just now and probably wouldn't pass a medical at the moment - but it should be sorted out by Friday.

"They are a big club, they have a great set-up and they are also pretty-much guaranteed European football every year."

But Stretford denied Clark had spoken about his future, adding: "I've been trying to get to the bottom of quotes attributed to my client. It is deeply upsetting to keep reading, seeing and hearing quotes of no validity attributed to someone.

"Lee has given no quotes to any media with regards to his footballing future. It is incidents like this that serve only to create further animosity between football clubs, players and the media."
