Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs has a clear message for Rangers

Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan has been linked with a move to Scottish Championship rivals Rangers this summer.

Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs has told The Scottish Sun that he will not do any business with Scottish Championship rivals Rangers.

According to the British tabloid, Rangers are interested in signing Scott Allan from Hibs this summer.

It has been reported by The Sun that the 23-year-old midfielder put in a transfer request after Hibernian turned down two bids from the Gers.

Stubbs has insisted that Hibs will not sell Allan or any other player to Rangers.

“The transfer request doesn’t change our position as a football club,” the Hibernian boss told The Scottish Sun. “We will not do business with Rangers. I don’t know how clear I have to be.”

Good move from Hibernian?

Both Rangers and Hibernian will be aiming to win the Scottish Championship title this season and get automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

It makes sense for Hibs not to sell one of their best players to the Gers, as that is only going to strengthen their main rivals.

Allan is one of the best midfielders in the Championship and enjoyed a superb season in 2014-15.

Even if the former West Bromwich Albion man does not play well this season, Hibs can at least take reassurance from the fact that he is not going to play well for Rangers.
