Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet has insisted that East End Park is “perfect” for him just now – despite speculation linking him with a January move to Rangers.
According to The Evening Times, the Gers have been “keeping tabs” on the Pars hitman after continuing last season’s goal-laden form following his move from rivals Raith Rovers.
Nisbet has scored 11 times in 19 appearances in all competitions this season, netting 34 last season for Raith, with Rangers scouts watching the 22-year-old in action.
Despite the prospect of a move to Ibrox, the former Partick Thistle youngster insists Dunfermline is where he wants to be.
“Rangers is a massive club so I want to keep doing what I’m doing. From there we’ll see what happens, really,” Nisbet told the Evening Times.
“I don’t support either of the big two but I’ve got to think about the rest of my career.
“Right now at Dunfermline it’s perfect, it’s where I want to be. We’ve got a good group of players.”
The Gers already have the likes of Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe and Greg Stewart in the first-team squad and with promising youngsters such as Zak Rudden and Dapo Mebude hoping for an opportunity, it’s hard to see where Nisbet fits.
After signing a two-year deal with Dunfermline last summer, he wouldn’t be an expensive option but whether he has the ability to make the step up is unclear.
There’s maybe something to it, but it wouldn’t be a surprise is January comes and goes and Nisbet remains at East End Park.
