Transfer Rumour: Rangers Favourites To Sign Old Boy Naismith From Norwich

Glasgow Rangers are leading the way to re-sign former frontman Steven Naismith, according to the odds of 7/4 with Sky Bet.

The 30-year-old left the Ibrox Stadium in the summer of 2012 due to the club’s financial difficulties and joined Premier League side Everton, before moving on to current club Norwich City for £9 million in January 2016.

However, now the bookmaker suggests that the Scotland international could be set for a return back to the Light Blues – a move that the Irvine-born man has previously stated he is open to.

During his time with Rangers Naismith played a key role in the club’s success, netting 33 times as well as providing 30 assists during his 132 appearances.

Following the move south the Scot again proved his worth, notching 25 times for the Toffees in 67 games, with the majority of those coming off the substitutes bench.

Since his big-money move to the Canaries just under 18 months ago the goals have not been as free flowing, with the former Gers man only converting eight.

However, the experienced talisman has shown in the past he is able to make a big impact in Scottish football, and with Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha possibly becoming too reliant on veteran Kenny Miller, the signing of the former attacker could be a way to spark a title challenge next season.
