Report: Rangers want Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet

Kevin Nisbet used to play for Partick Thistle.

Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet is being monitored by Rangers, according to The Herald.

Nisbet has enjoyed an impressive start to the season for Dunfermline. This has caught the attention of Scottish Premiership title hopefuls Rangers.

The 22-year-old only joined Dunfermline in the summer after spells with Partick Thistle and Raith Rovers. He had also spent time on loan with East Stirlingshire, Ayr United and Dumbarton.

Nisbet never scored for Partick but he managed 34 in 46 while at Raith. This earned him a move to the Scottish Championship and he has made an instant impression with Dunfermline.


The Glaswegian striker has already scored 11 goals in just 19 matches this season. That includes six in 13 matches in the second tier of Scottish football. He also scored a hat-trick against Albion Rovers in the cup and has scored four in his last three.

This has prompted Rangers to take a closer look. The Gers have sent scouts to watch Nisbet this season and could launch a move in the near future.

TBR’s view

This could be a huge transfer for Nisbet. On a personal level, he just needs to keep scoring and he could earn a dream move to Rangers.

He is not the only young Scottish striker in the Championship being watched by Rangers, though. It could be a case of choosing between Nisbet and Lawrence Shankland for Steven Gerrard.
