Rangers boss Ally McCoist expects to hear from Dundee United youngster Scott Allan very soon regarding his future.

The 20-year old midfielder looks set to join West Bromwich Albion this winter but Rangers have held talks with the Scotland U21 international and McCoist has his fingers crossed about a possible shift to Ibrox.

"We have shown an interest in Scott, as have one or two other clubs. I think we will probably hear in the near future what is happening there," he said.

"I hear he's a Rangers supporter and I hope he turns out to be a Rangers player too, but time will tell."

Meanwhile, 'Gers Old Firm rivals Celtic have also been credited with an interest in Allan but manager Neil Lennon has indicated a move to Parkhead is unlikely.

"He is out of contract," he said.

"He is a good footballer, but my only concern would be that we have plenty in the position.

"He is a player that is of interest. I haven't spoken to him yet."
