HIBERNIAN are becoming increasingly exasperated with Rangers after the Ibrox club last night submitted a third bid for midfielder Scott Allan.
The Easter Road club are adamant they will not sell the gifted midfielder to their Championship rivals and have already turned down two offers from Mark Warburton’s side.
Similarly short shrift is likely to be given to this third bid as both clubs prepare to kick off the new league season this weekend.
The first two offers, which Hibs said were worth £175,000 and £225,000, were dismissed by the Edinburgh club who released a statement saying, “the player will not be sold to Rangers”.
Allan, 23, has handed in a transfer request but Hibs remain unmoved. The player is out of contract at the end of the season and free to speak to other clubs in January, but Hibs would rather retain his services than cash in as they seek to win promotion back to the Premiership. Allan has started the last two games on the bench amid the distractions caused by Rangers’ interest in the player.
