SCOTT ALLAN has not been discussed in terms of a move to Celtic, according to sources within the club.

 

There were whispers that the Hibs midfielder, who has also been linked with a move to Rangers, was on Ronny Deila’s radar, however those reports appear unfounded.

If we sign Allan, I doubt it will be before the last day of the transfer window.

 

Might be different for a number of reasons:

 

* season tickets might need a boost by something "seen to be happening" by those unwilling to give the new board or manager time to do things in a non-showy manner

* MW will be keen to get a core of his team together asap and start crucial pre-season work as immediately as is feasible

* Might lose him to someone else if we drag our heels (that's presuming we want him that badly).

 

Though I agree handing Hibs nearly a million quid at this stage of the transfer window is endangering our own prospects.

Doubt Hivs will get the whole fee up front for Allen, half now then £200k then another £200k before the end of next season. Assuming of course he goes for £800k on Edinburgh Rumours thread?

Good point and the fee does seem very high, his agent is playing a good game though, it would seem and English clubs from the top two divisions (and some lower) can pay that out on players they'll never even play - just on the off chance, like Liverpool splurging over double that on Danny Wilson, just in case he developed to their standard.

Not much of this reads very believably, but , anyway:

 

Scott Allan has today dropped the biggest hint yet that he is no longer a Hibernian player by removing the club’s name from his official Twitter account.

 

As is well known he is under massive interest from Rangers and Celtic, and Ibroxnoise.co.uk sources have confirmed that Hibs tried to offer him a substantial wage increase and two-year extension.

 

Today’s developments suggest he has rejected that, and it now comes down to a straight choice between the two Old Firm clubs.

 

One source claimed he made a verbal agreement with Celtic manager Ronny Deila a week or so ago, but has yet to agree terms or finalise the deal (this information supposedly came from a current Rangers player), while others have confirmed the asking price has increased to £1.2M and Rangers may be priced out.

 

Rangers have reportedly initiated contact with Hibernian, and with Allan a boyhood fan, he will hope the Ibrox men can stump up enough cash and offer an incentive to make him choose the Championship for another year over the SPL and guaranteed European football with Celtic.
