Report: Rotherham United make bid for Rangers number one target Scott Allan

New York Stadium sign, Rotherham

The Hibernian man is becoming Scotland's most wanted this summer.

It is becoming the transfer story of Scottish football this summer, as the Scott Allan to Rangers saga rumbles into yet another day.

It was reported yesterday by the BBC that Rangers had made a third bid for the Hibernian player. The Glasgow club have already made two approaches for their Scottish Championship rivals, both of which were swiftly rejected, with Hibs maintaining they will not sell to their title rivals this summer.

Allan, a boyhood Rangers fan, submitted a formal transfer request last month – which was rejected by the Edinburgh side.

Now, Rangers have some competition from the English Championship for the midfielder’s coveted signature.

The BBC are citing a report from today’s print edition of The Express, in which it is claimed that Rotherham United have submitted their own bid for the player.

The report claims that The Millers have lodged a £400,000 bid for the 23-year-old this week, hoping Hibs will be more likely to sell to an English side rather than their title rivals Rangers.

Rangers clearly want to make Allan their latest signing but it seems as though Hibs reluctance to send him to Ibrox has acted as chum in the water for other sharks circling the prey.
