Report: Third Rangers bid for Scott Allan imminent, player pushing for Ibrox move

Rangers are poised to make a third bid for Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan.

According to the Daily Record, Rangers are set to make a third bid for Hibernian star Scott Allan - and the player wants a move to Ibrox.

Allan, 23, was the subject of two failed bids from Rangers last week, with the report stating that the last of those was worth £250,000.

Now - just days after Allan was left on the bench as Hibs lost 6-2 to Rangers - the Daily Record suggest that Rangers are set to submit a third bid for Allan.

The report states that, if Hibernian continue to hold him at Easter Road, Allan will submit a written transfer request, having already told manager Alan Stubbs that he wants to move to Ibrox.

Intriguingly, it's also added that Allan wants to join forces with recent Rangers signing Andy Halliday, given that the pair have been friends since the age of five.

It seems that Hibs are fighting a losing battle to keep Allan, and with one year left on his contract, Allan could certainly attempt to force a move to join Mark Warburton's men.

Despite signing Jason Holt last week, Rangers could still stand to add a creative force in midfield, and Allan would definitely fit the bill - if Rangers can tempts Hibernian into a deal.

A boyhood Rangers fan, Allan is unsurprisingly desperate to make the move to Ibrox, and whilst negotiations are difficult, the midfielder has the quality to make the wait worthwhile for Warburton and Rangers.
