A report published by BBC Sport has claimed that Glasgow Celtic’s Scott Allan could be set to possibly move to Rangers this month.
The 27-year-old appears to be surplus to requirements at Parkhead and with his contract set to expire this summer, there is a good chance that he could be moved on this month.
A youth product of Dundee United, Allan has spent the bulk of his career out on loan to various clubs.
He arrived at Celtic from Hibernian in 2015 and since then has had loan spells with the likes of Rotherham United, Dundee and also returned to Hibs on loan during the second half of last term.
Allan is still a good player and now is at the peak of his career. While there are arguably players who are better than him within the Hoops squad, he could be playing regular first-team football for most of the clubs in the Scottish top-flight.
He will be itching to play regularly and he needs to now move to a club that is able to offer this to him.
Transfers between Celtic and Rangers generally do not happen, but considering the contract situation of Allan, a move could potentially be on the cards.
The Gers have been revitalised under Steven Gerrard this season and beat the Hoops 1-0 in their last encounter before the winter break.
Rangers fans will hope the club will bolster their squad further in January, but it remains to be seen what kind of reaction Allan would get at Ibrox given he is a Celtic player.
