A report has claimed that Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet is being watched by Rangers after a strong start to the season (Evening Times).

It has led to speculation over his next move, with Rangers the first team to be credited with an interest.

Nisbet is crucial for Dunfermline

Stevie Crawford recruited Nisbet on a two-year deal earlier this season. He bagged a brilliant 34 goals last season and has kept firing in the Championship this term.

Whilst Lawrence Shankland is grabbing headlines following his Championship performances, Nisbet’s performances have gone quietly under the radar. With an impressive strike rate, interest was always going to crop up.

It’s vital for the Pars that they keep their star striker. Having only just arrived at East End Park, it would be a shame to lose him so soon. His recent transfer though does put them in a good position to ask for a big sum.

If a big offer does come in though, Dunfermline may have to consider whether they can afford to turn down a large financial boost if an offer was placed for Nisbet.
