Easter Road boss remains defiant

Hibs boss Stubbs says Allan worth £1m

Alan StubbsHibernian manager Alan Stubbs has put a £1 million price tag on Scott Allan in a statement of intent that he intends to hold on to his star asset.

After rejecting the latest offer from English Championship club Rotherham United at a third of Stubbs’ valuation, the Easter Road boss has made it clear that he will not let Allan leave for less than the sort of money he might command in the south.

Stubbs has now informed Rangers manager Mark Warburton, whose latest approach was for £275,000, that he should not make any further offers. English League One club Wigan have also shown interest in the player who has expressed a preference to remain in Scotland.

“Our stance as a club has not changed and is not going to change, and we’ve had no offers from any other clubs. Not for sale is not for sale,” Stubbs tells the Daily Record.

Scott Allan“Is it mischievous ahead of the new season? You would have to ask Mark and his board of directors.”

Stubbs reckons Allan is as good as Lewis Macleod who last season left Rangers for Brentford.

He added: “Scott Allan is one of the most prestigious talents in Scottish football at this moment in time.

“You don’t sell your best players to a rival football club. You don’t let your best people go to a rival business unless you’re silly. I might be missing a point, I don’t know.”
