Rangers will certainly require a spot of spit and polish this summer – the current squad will not remain stagnant and work will begin on new blood, and with Alfredo Morelos’ future at Ibrox far from assured, not to mention rumblings about Ced the Ted Itten, there are a few murmurs towards arguably the best striker in the SPL outside the Old Firm.

Hibs’ Kevin Nisbet has had an excellent season at Easter Road, the 24-year old amassing 15 goals and 6 assists in just 38 appearances for Jack Ross’s men.

The nomadic striker has endured a bit of a journeyman career throughout Scottish football, with spells at Dunfermline and Thistle to name just two – it wasn’t till his move to Edinburgh in 2020 that he started to really get on.

But his career numbers have remained outstanding since the summer of 2018: 34 in 46 at Raith, 23 in 32 at Dunfermline and now solid postings for Hibs.

He’s contracted for another two years but would he be something useful for Stevie G to look at?

He’ll be divisive, as Rangers’ interest in Lyndon Dykes was – half the fanbase desperately wanted him, the other half thought he was well below standard.

We ended up with Cedric Itten.

But Nisbet?

Rangers always want the best talent – and while we doubt he’s good enough as a first-choice striker, well, Stevie knows best and Scott Wright, for example, has impressed everyone.

Maybe Nisbet is one he’s looking at….

  1. Correct theres something about that lad,he should be at ibrox for not alot of money

    WATP🇬🇧

  2. I think we may have missed the boat here and I can’t imagine Hibs being that chuffed about selling a prized asset to us. His numbers prior to Hibs suggested he was worth a punt and I presume he was watched and considered then rejected. Of course he has since proved that he can do the business at SPFL level which could change things slightly. What I like about him is he wants to shoot at every opportunity, something we are sadly lacking at the moment. Incidentally we probably had similar calls last season about Lawrence Shankland and that decision to not move for him has been proven to be correct.
