The Scottish giants have reportedly contacted Portland about the possibility of signing the 26-year-old Nigerian, but the MLS side are reluctant to let him leave.
Rangers have enquired about the possibility of signing Portland Timbers striker Fanendo Adi, according to the US Metro .
Adi, 26, first joined the Timbers from FC Copenhagen in May 2014 on an initial loan deal which later became permanent and has since established himself as one of the most prolific goalscorers in MLS, netting 41 times in 90 regular season appearances.
The Nigerian forward proved key to helping Caleb Porter’s side clinch their first-ever MLS Cup title in 2015, and while they surprisingly missed out on a playoff spot this past term, he still managed to finish joint-fifth in the Golden Boot standings with 16 goals in 33 games.
His impressive performances have unsurprisingly led to suggestions that he could make a move back to Europe in the near future, and reports over the summer named the likes of Crystal Palace, Saint-Etienne, Celtic and Rangers as potential suitors.
