Rangers face competiton from Rotherham United and Wigan Athletic in their pursuit of Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan, according to reports bySky Sports.
The Edinburgh club have already rejected three bids by Rangers for the 23-year-old but the former Scotland Under 21 international is said to be keen on a move to the team he grew up supporting.
Tuesday saw Rangers' third bid of around £300,000 turned down, yet this is not believed to have deterred either Rotherham or Wigan from weighing up a move for Allan.

Glasgow born Allan made 42 appearances for Hibs last campaign, scoring twice. The Scottish Championship side say they are confident of keeping one of their star players, in public at least. What they think in private may well be a completely different matter.
The in demand midfielder joined from West Brom last summer after failing to break into Albion's line-up following a move from Dundee United in 2012.
For now at least, Allan is part of Alan Stubbs' squad and came off the bench to score in last week's 3-0 League Cup win over Montrose.
Speaking to Sky Sports earlier this week, Rotherham boss Steve Evans said:
"We're certainly hoping to add a couple of players this week... We know who we'd like to add. Our chairman is aware of that."
