Celtic and Rangers target Scott Allan comments on his future

Celtic U-20s

Former West Bromwich Albion midfielder Scott Allan has been linked with both Scottish Premiership champions Celtic and Scottish Championship club Rangers.

Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan has told Sky Sports that he does not want to leave the Scottish Championship club this summer.

Allan joined Hibs on a two-year contract in the summer of 2014 after he was released by Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.

“I’m a Hibs player, I’ve got a year left of my contract and nothing has changed,” the 23-year-old told Sky Sports. “I’m looking forward to the start of the season here.

“I just get on with my business every day and as I say, I’ve got a year left here so I try not to look too much into it.”

“In the future, I would like another chance down there but for me now it’s just about kicking on next season and getting better than I was last year,” Allan added when asked about returning to England in the future.

Blow for Celtic and Rangers

According to The Scottish Sun, Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers are both interested in signing Allan from Hibernian in the summer transfer window.

The British tabloid recently claimed that Premiership champions Celtic are lining up a £500k bid for the former West Brom and Dundee United man, while reporting that Rangers are also keen on recruiting him.

Important Player for Hibernian

Allan was the best player for Hibernian during the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.

The 23-year-old was a key reason behind Hibs’ second-placed finish in the ‘regular’ Scottish Championship season and was named the Scottish Championship's PFA Player of the Year.

If Hibernian retain the services of Allan for next season, then they will have a strong chance of getting promoted to the Scottish Premiership.
