Behind Morelos and Defoe wouldn't have done his development any good and I'd question his all round ability to play in the lone role at a club like Rangers, so no lazy comparisons required.
Morelos arrived in 2017 when Shankland was on loan at Greenock. There was no way we were signing him from Aberdeen as he was brutal.We had the chance to take him long before those two arrived...
It's not lazy. The comparison gets made because it's accurate.
I don't know if he would be a good signing for us but I do agree that the comparisons to Clark are lazy, it has taken Clark years to start scoring goals in the Championship and has been a League 1 striker at best for a good part of his career, whilst Shankland has taken to the Championship brilliantly but will always be held back by his failed stint at the sheep
