Rangers-linked Kevin Nisbet has been subject to a bid from English club Millwall – with Hibs also open to selling the striker.

At least that’s according to the likes of the Scotsman, who claim the Lions’ initial bid for the red-hot forward has been rebuffed at Easter Road with the £1m offered substantially lower than the asking price.

This comes after the rampant return of Kevin Nisbet from a devastating cruciate ligament injury, with the striker netting seven goals in seven games since coming back into the Hibs side.

It is not clear how much Hibs would demand for the ex-Dunfermline striker’s services but with Kevin Nisbet out of contract come the summer of 2024 the club are said to be eager to avoid a repeat of the Ryan Porteous situation.

Scotland international Porteous is expected to leave Easter Road this January for a cut-price fee after entering the final six months of his contract in Edinburgh.

Ex-Rangers target Kevin Nisbet linked with Hibs exit

With the kind of form Kevin Nisbet is showing, it’s little wonder there is interest in his services and perhaps Rangers will be monitoring the striker’s situation closely.

Rangers have been linked with a move for Nisbet throughout his career and the 25-year-old is at an interesting juncture with a flailing Hibs now seriously considering a sale.

Linked to Rangers during his time at Dunfermline, there were even claims last season that Rangers narrowly missed out on the player in the summer window.

At least that’s according to Hugh MacDonald, who has previously claimed that Gerrard was a big fan of Kevin Nisbet but “for whatever reason, he couldn’t that over the line.”

With Alfredo Morelos out of contract in the summer and Kemar Roofe consistently injured, perhaps Rangers are considering their options in the transfer market.

But should they retain interest in Kevin Nisbet, then they might have to face a transfer battle with Millwall not the only club mentioned.
