Rangers are eyeing a move for Portsmouth striker Brett Pitman, according to the Scotsman.

The experienced striker scored 25 goals for Portsmouth this season in League One and is now the subject of interest from Scottish Premier League giants Rangers.

Their new manager, Steven Gerrard, has been busy bolstering his newly inherited squad. The Ibrox side have already signed Scott Arfield and Allan McGregor from Burnley and Hull City respectively. They are now looking to add some more experience to their attack with Brett Pitman.

The 30-year-old has proven in this campaign that he still has it and Portsmouth could now face a battle to hold onto him.

Pitman started his career with Bournemouth and went onto score 62 goals in 197 games for the Cherries. He was snapped up by Bristol City in August 2010 for a fee in the region of £1 million. He adapted well to life in the Championship with the Robins and scored a combined 20 goals in his first two seasons at Ashton Gate.

He then moved back to Bournemouth in 2012 in League One and was prolific to help them gain promotion from the third tier to the Premier League in the space of three years. However, he left the Cherries in the Premier League and joined Ipswich Town in 2015.

Pitman has since joined Portsmouth but could be on his way to Scotland this summer with Rangers eyeing a summer move for him.
