He said: “We’ve had another offer, which is a little bit more than the last one, and it’s been rejected. Not for sale is not for sale. Scott Allan is one of the most prestigious talents in Scottish football at this moment in time. Why would we accept £850,000 when you’ve got someone who goes to another club for over £1million?”
The other player Stubbs is referring to is Lewis Macleod, who left Rangers last season to sign with Brentford.
Allan is undoubtedly better than Macleod, and has proven himself in the Scottish Championship despite his young age.
Rangers want to bring him in, and have made formal approaches to sign Allan, as they search for promotion to the top flight this season.
His high pressure play is well suited to Mark Warburton’s management, and signing him would also weaken Hibs - who are arguably Rangers’ biggest rivals in the search for the top flight.
However, Stubbs wants at least £1 million for him, and it is hard to see how Allan can be worth that value having only impressed in the Championship. It is clear that they want to price Rangers out of a move, and the Gers would be wise to not sign Allan at that price.
