Celtic are reportedly monitoring the progress of Rangers target Kevin Nisbet following his fine start to the season.

According to Football Insider, the Hoops are hoping to “blow Rangers away” in their pursuit of Nisbet after Steven Gerrard’s side were linked with a move for the 22-year-old earlier this month. 

Celtic’s scouts have reportedly been impressed by the striker so far this season but there is no mention of an imminent move for him in January.

Nisbet has certainly been in impressive form for Dunfermline this season, scoring 11 goals and creating five assists in 19 appearances in all competitions, with his side currently in sixth place in the Championship.

The 22-year-old has carried on his form from Raith Rovers where he netted 34 times in 46 appearances in all competitions, and if he continues his current form then he may well continue to impress Celtic’s scouts.

However a potential move to Parkhead will not yet be on the cards given how unproven he is at the top level in Scotland, but his form has certainly shown promise this season.

Do you think Nisbet would be a good signing for Celtic?
