Naismith wrote on BBC Sport: “There have been a lot of stories linking me with two of my old clubs, Kilmarnock and Rangers. I have not spoken to either of them, but I am not ruling out any clubs at this stage.

“I have not hidden the fact that I am definitely going back to play in Scotland one day. Whether that is sooner or later, we will wait and see.

“But it is something I really want to do. I want to go back when I have something to give and feel I can contribute and be a big success.”
