Ranger Sign Scott Allan
Rangers have had a third bid of £300k accepted for Hibs midfielder Scott Allan. Scott Allan lead the Assists chart with 18 assists for Hibs. He led Hibs to the top flight after winning in the Play-off final
Allan last month formally submitted a transfer request at Easter Road in the wake of the club rejecting two transfer bids from their Premiership rivals.The Ibrox club's second offer last month for the playmaker amounted to £225,000 but Hibs said then that "the player will not be sold to Rangers".
That offer was £50,000 more than Rangers' initial bid for the former West Brom and Dundee United player. Allen is a boyhood Rangers fan.
Despite being linked to a move to Rangers last year, Allan signed a two-year contract with Hibernian in July 2014. Allan made his debut for Hibs on 5 August 2014, coming on as a substitute during extra-time in a 2–1 defeat against Rangers in the Scottish Challenge Cup.
Allan soon established himself as a regular in the team, and after scoring his first goal for the club in a 6–3 win over Dumbarton in November, manager Alan Stubbs described him as being "as good as anyone in the league", adding that he considered Allan to be "head and shoulders above a lot of people he's up against.
He turned in an outstanding performance for Hibs in their 4–1 win over Rangers on this where he provided assists for Hibs' third and fourth goals and won the Man of the Match award. Rangers had already won the title at the time.
Allan said' To play for Rangers is a dream come true, I have dreamt about it since I was a kid and this was my goal in life. Our target this year is to challenge Celtic and Aberdeen, our two greatest rivals for a play among Europe's elite.'
Warburton said that Allan is a 'great young lad' with many years ahead of him and he has the potential to be one of the best players in Scotland. He said' I am pleased to sign Scott (Allan) as he is a bright young lad with the potential to become even better. I told the fans at the start that youth is the way forward and this is the way forward,
