Andy Halliday wants Rangers to sign Scott Allan

Andy Halliday wants Rangers to sign Scott Allan from Scottish Championship rivals Hibernian this month.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has told The Scottish Sun that he wants his club to sign Scott Allan this month.

Allan is on the books of Rangers’ Scottish Championship rivals Hibernian at the moment and is a transfer target for the Gers, according to the British tabloid.

Halliday, who moved to the Glasgow outfit earlier this summer, has said that he wants the 23-year-old midfielder to join him at Ibrox.

“I’ve known Scott all my life,” the former Middlesbrough midfielder told The Scottish Sun. “Our families are friendly and we went to nursery and primary school together at Cardonald. He was from that area, five minutes down the road from me.

“We are Rangers fans and both dreamed of being footballers. Luckily I’ve managed to get here and hopefully, if it all works out the way I want it to, Scott will join me.”

Tough for Rangers to sign Scott Allan?

Both Rangers and Hibernian are aiming to win the Scottish Championship title this season and gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Allan is one of the best midfielders in the Championship and enjoyed a superb season in the second tier of Scottish football last season.

It would make sense for Hibs not to sell one of their best players to the Gers, as that would only strengthen their main rivals for automatic promotion.

However, the fact that Allan is a Rangers fan could play a part. After all, not many footballers get to turn out for the club they supported as a boy.
