Report: Celtic play down interest in Scott Allan, no transfer discussed

Scott Allan has been linked with both Celtic and Rangers.

Allan, currently turning out for Hibs, has been linked with a move to both Celtic and Rangers this summer, but a report in the Evening Times has played down the Bhoys’ interest.

The Daily Mail reported last month that both Old Firm outfits were looking to sign the 23-year-old midfielder, on the back of his impressive campaign. 40 games brought a return of two goals and 17 assists, as Hibs reached the play-off semi-final - where they lost to Rangers.

He was named Championship Player of the Year, and his performances earned him transfer links to Celtic and Rangers, although it now appears as if the latter club are more likely to sign him.

The latest Evening Times report indicates that Celtic have not discussed the signing of Scott Allan, with the links to a Parkhead switch just rumours. Ronny Deila has not targeted the talented midfielder, and that leaves the Gers’ as the only interested party.

There is no reference as to whether Mark Warburton will follow up the long-standing interest in Allan, as he attempts to rebuild the playing squad in his view, but should they submit a formal approach for Allan, it is unlikely that Rangers will face much competition for his signature.
