PAOK reject second Rangers bid for Croatian striker Antonio Colak

Rangers are yet to agree a deal for Croatian striker Antonio Colak, according to Giannis Chorianopoulos.

The editor of the Sport Time newspaper based in Greece wrote on Twitter on 29 June that the Gers have submitted a second offer for the striker, but it was rejected.

The new offer included a sell-on clause, but as it stands, no deal has been agreed for the striker.

He wrote on Twitter: “At Rangers second offer for Antonio Čolak, a sell on clause (except €2,3m.) was included. The offer has been rejected by PAOK. There is no deal.”

Sky Sports reported on 29 June that Rangers have agreed a fee of around £1.8m with PAOK for the striker and personal terms have been agreed as well.


While reports in British media suggest that a deal has been agreed, it seems the Greek media have no such information at the moment.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is looking to bolster their forward department in the summer and wants Colak to join his side. The 28-year-old is keen on a move to Glasgow, and he would be a cracking addition to the club.

Alfredo Morelos is facing an uncertain future at the club as he has only a year left on his deal at Ibrox.

The Colombian striker is a bankable asset and it could be a possibility that the Gers could sell him if they receive a good offer. Whether he stays or leaves, the club still need to add a striker to their ranks, although Van Bronckhorst can rely on Kemar Roofe as well.

Colak struggled to make an impact for the Greek side, but he did impress during his stint with Malmo, where he scored 19 goals for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side.

In other Rangers news, contract talks with a key player have hit a new impasse with a summer exit now on the cards.
