Report: Rangers pursuing Scott Allan, Warburton wants to bring midfielder to Ibrox

Rangers FC

Rangers are reportedly stepping up their pursuit of Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan.

According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are set to ramp up their interest in Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan after tying up two more signings on Monday.

Having already landed Wes Foderingham, Rob Kiernan, Danny Wilson and Andy Halliday, Rangers added two more players on Monday evening, signing Wigan Athletic duo James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn on three-year contracts.

However, the strengthening won't stop there for new manager Mark Warburton, who need even more new faces in his squad ahead of the new season.

With most of the work done, Rangers now look set to focus their attentions on making one big signing - and The Scottish Sun believe that will be Scott Allan.

The Hibernian midfielder, 23, starred under Alan Stubbs last season, helping fire the Edinburgh-based club to the play-offs, only to be knocked out by Rangers.

Now, talented midfielder Allan - who has one year left on his contract at Easter Road - has been watched by Rangers boss Warburton, who wants to bring the Scot to Ibrox this summer.

Important target

Rangers have not only landed a top young goalkeeper in Foderingham, but they have also built a strong defence and added a striker in Waghorn.

Now, Warburton needs to find a midfield player who can create in the final third, and become a potential star of the future for Rangers - and Allan could be that man.

He may come at a price, but top players like Allan don't come cheap, and new chairman Dave King may have to dig deep to get the man to spark Rangers' revolution.
