Rangers fans react to that incredible Scott Allan transfer rumour

When club insider Four Lads Had a Dream spoke about a Rangers transfer rumour which “would start WW3” he probably didn’t expect such an explosive reaction on Twitter.

The hint suggests that there’s a former Celtic player in the mix and given Ross Wilson’s relationship with Southampton it had some thinking the club could break rival hearts by looking at Stuart Armstrong.

But there is another ex-Celtic player playing closer to home that has had Rangers fans standing to attention on Twitter.

The social media platform is awash with supporters discussing the prospect of former Celtic midfielder Scott Allan joining Rangers.

Now back at Hibs, the Easter Road club infamously refused to sell Allan to Rangers due to the fact both sides were playing in the Championship in the 15/16 season.

Allan – a boyhood Rangers fan – went to Celtic instead in search of European and Champions League football.

Despite making Scottish football’s biggest faux pas, Allan spent much of his time in the background at Celtic Park and after a short loan spell back in Edinburgh moved to Hibs on a three-year deal [BBC Scotland].

Still only 27, Rangers fans are in two minds about the emerging rumour.

Most fans are completely against the idea:

Whilst some are more open-minded:

Whatever your opinion, Allan was pictured leaving for Hibs’ warm-weather training camp so is for now very much a part of Jack Ross’ plans this season.

It would certainly represent a monumental turnaround for the midfielder who never quite settled in at Celtic Park following the move.

It may well be something to do with the Rangers tattoo Scott Allan allegedly got whilst on the books at Parkhead.
