Their fourth offer worth around £2million plus add-ons has been accepted though and it’s now down to agreeing personal terms with the player himself.
Speaking on Go Radio, Ferguson said: “It would be a great signing for Millwall but it baffles me why Rangers or Celtic aren’t…I was going to say risk or gamble but he’s not even that.
“I think he’s good enough to play for either of the Old Firm and I’m surprised there’s been no contact.
“There are still a few days left in the window, there are still six days but we’ve seen it in the past when good young players go for a couple of million pounds, which I think they are worth.
“Like my nephew Lewis (Ferguson) away to Bologna, (Josh) Doig away to Italy as well, (Aaron) Hickey before that.
“Lyndon Dykes is a different example, he obviously plays with Scotland but he came in late to Queen of the South and then played with Livingston.
“I like to see these young guys being kept in Scotland.
“I know eventually they will move to the bigger leagues but, for me, Kevin Nisbet at £2m – I’m taking him all day long.”
The Hoops were on the hunt for a new striker this month with Giorgos Giakoumakis set to leave the club in the coming days.
Atlanta United and Japanese outfit Urawa Red Diamonds are battling it out to land him before the window slams shut.
Nisbet has been targeted by Postecoglou as a potential replacement but the former Socceroos boss has already recruited South Korean striker Oh Hyeon-gyu.
