Smith interested in Commons

Walter Smith is yet to be tempted to delve into the January transfer market and bolster his title-chasing Rangers squad, but says he is considering a bid for Derby's Kris Commons.

Rangers prepare for Hibs

• Live Transfer blog

Rangers, who meet Hibernian in the Premier League on Wednesday night, which is live on ESPN in the UK, have been linked with their former striker Nacho Novo and FC Groningen's Tim Matavz - but Plymouth forward Bradley Wright-Phillips signed for Charlton Athletic on Monday.

And although he is still considering other options, Smith confirmed that Rangers are in talks to sign Derby winger Commons.

"He's someone we are interested in trying to get. We've made an enquiry and we are in talks with Derby to see what the situation is," he said. ''It's important, with us having a small squad of players, if we do get a player in, that he can play in more than one position. Kris can do that.''

Forward Steven Naismith believes new recruits could aid Rangers' bid to retain the SPL title. He said: "It would freshen the place up a wee bit and maybe put a few boys on their toes.''

Naismith, though, hopes Allan McGregor will stay at Ibrox amid speculation linking the goalkeeper with Arsenal.

Speaking at an ESPN event to promote the clash at Easter Road, he added: "I've seen lots of goalies around Europe and I would put Allan McGregor up with the best of them. This is just another transfer window and hopefully it's one we can get through and we can keep all our players and hopefully add a few more bodies.''
