Allan hands in transfer request but Hibernian will not sell to Rangers

Hibernian has refused to sell midfielder Scott Allan to Scottish Championship rivals Rangers after he handed in a transfer request.

The 23-year-old's future has been the subject of much speculation recently as Hibs have rejected a couple of bids from Rangers for the player, but the Edinburgh outfit have no intentions of offloading to a rival.

A statement from Hibernian read: "In the face of continued media interest, Hibernian Football Club can confirm that Scott Allan has today handed in a written transfer request.

"This comes on the back of two unwelcome and uninvited approaches from Rangers FC regarding Scott, the first for £175,000 and the second for £225,000.

"Hibernian FC has refused both bids because the Club has no wish to transfer a valuable player to strengthen a major rival in the battle to win the Championship and gain promotion to the Premiership.

"Hibernian's position has not changed. The player will not be sold to Rangers."
