Rangers boss Ally McCoist is refusing to give up on losing Dundee United midfielder Scott Allan to West Bromwich Albion.

West Brom last week agreed a fee, believed to be in the region of £400,000, with Dundee United for the midfielder, who has also been linked with Celtic.

He said: "We knew there would be interest from Celtic and we know there is interest from down south with West Brom.

"I've spoken to Scott and I'm really keen for him to come. I await his decision.

"I just think he is very forward-thinking. I've seen him a good few times and he sees a pass forward and he can split a defence with a pass.

"He's a talented boy, one of the most talented boys in the country at the moment.

"I still think there is a long way to go for Scott and when we were chatting to him I did mention that to him. Hopefully his progression would be at this club rather than anywhere else."
