KEITH WRIGHT has urged Scott Allan to snub any interest from boyhood heroes Rangers and use Hibernian to earn another crack at English football.

Allan has been strongly linked with interest from the Ibrox outfit after starring for Hibs in last season’s Championship.

Wright said: “Scott’s definitely a top player. Everything that Hibs did well last season came through the midfield. He was probably the main man that made them tick.

“He’s had a shot down south that didn’t quite work out for him but his big move will come because he can’t play at that level and put in those performances every week without getting noticed down south.

“But I would say if he’s enjoying it in the next two years then the challenge is to establish himself as a really good player who can pick his move if he goes down south.

“I don’t know financially if he’s on a good deal but that could be the thing to push him over the line to stay with Hibs – a wee bit more financially on his contract.

“Because I think he’s enjoying his football. He looks like he’s enjoying it – and you can always see it in players.

“Hopefully that might prove more important than the money he could earn elsewhere.”
