Rangers boss Walter Smith has confirmed signing a striker is his priority this summer.

The Gers are having to face up to life without Kris Boyd and Nacho Novo.

Novo has returned to his native Spain with Sporting Gijon, while Boyd is on the verge of deciding his next move after rejecting a new contract at Ibrox.

Smith has already seen a bid for Portsmouth's Tommy Smith rejected, with the club's administrator Andrew Andronikou branding a reported £300,000 offer as "derisory".

He told rangerstv.tv: "That's a thing we have to look at and it's not an easy thing with the financial constraints to find forwards to replace them.

"Both the boys, Nacho and Kris, were terrific servants to the club and we wish them well and hope they can be as successful in the future as they have been at Ibrox.

"But Rangers will always go on whether it's Walter Smith, Kris Boyd or Nacho Novo that leaves. The club will always go on and we will hopefully be able to fill that breach."
