You would think there is a tug of war going on over Lionel Messi's signature with the way this boys transfer "saga" is all over every Scottish media outlet.

The country's pundits and sports writers are seriously needing to get a feckin grip.

He's a dyed in the wool Sevconian and DAB drop out who flopped down south. He's come back up the road and had a good season in the first division.

They're all acting like it's the sale of the century.

Embarrassing to say the least.

To be fair I think he's pretty decent only going on last season but he's no exactly a feckinn world beater. Lower premiership/ first division player at best IMO all the journos pissin their frillys cause the zombies are interested.. Nothing new there.

Said pretty much the same about Allan the other night. One good season in the championship and everyone's proclaiming him the best thing in Scotland.

Hibs surely have to let him go after he went public in his desire to play for Rangers. I wouldn't want e.g. Bain or Stewart to stay at Dens if they made it clear they were desperate to go to the Old Firm.

Allan is a decent player IMO but one who seems to make stupid career decisions. I appreciate the lure of playing for your boyhood heroes however I can't help but think that sticking at Hibs for a season and then moving down south will lead to a better outcome for him financially and in terms of career progression. Fair enough if Rangers were offering European football but that's a while away.

Did the DABs bid get lost in the post :-)

DAB's never made any serious bids for any of their big money targets - it's alright though as they signed 2 exotic names on a free who are better....

It's a no-brainer for Allan IMO - he'll get paid more, have to travel less and he's not long had a baby so will be able to settle properly in Glasgow for the forseeable. He'll be just as much in the shop window (moreso in fact) at Ibrokes due to the medias constant creaming over all things OF and I wouldn't be surprised to see him mentioned for Scotland caps not long after his move.

sh**e for Hibs an I'd be byling if I was a Hibee. Our closest one was Scott R to the DAB's - made a lot of sense for him (more money, didn't need to move his family etc) and for that I find it hard to resent him -  then I remember he engineered a free transfer and was turning his back on his boyhood team in favour of their bitterest rivals and to me that is unforgivable. At least Allan can say he is a Teddy Bear at heart.

In the grand scheme of things, Warburton is probably not bothered about getting Allan. The main thing to The Rangers is that Hibs DONT have him!! He can get Hibs the Title.

Let him rot while taking a wage?

C'mon eh? Would you pay a boy to work in your pub and not give him any shifts?

Haven't followed the saga but heard a bit on the radio on Saturday when I was checking the scores that Hibs were greeting that Rangers weren't offering enough and I now read today that they are suggesting they want 1 million for him.

Absolutely bonkers.

Stewart and Bain must be worth at least 2.5 million each based on that DAB-esque valuation.

Hibs have to weigh it up against how much promotion is worth to them.

If they can't hold onto him and that effects their promotion chances they have to get decent money.
