Houston blasts wild speculation

Houston blasts wild speculation

Peter Houston has described rumours linking teenage midfielder Scott Allan with a move to one of the Old Firm clubs as "absolute nonsense."

Recent speculation also had Newcastle United making an enquiry for the talented nineteen-year-old, who Houston fully expects to sign a new three-year deal at Tannadice.

"We offered Scott Allan a deal last week," Houston told BBC Scotland. "He has taken it back to speak to his father. It could be his agent that is pushing things, but we'll expect an answer from Scott and we'll announce it when he accepts it.

"He is nowhere near ready to go into the Celtic, Rangers or Newcastle first team," he continued. "We've seen him through glandular fever, broken legs and other instances off the park - and we're getting some rumour monger starting a rumour about Scott Allan. It is galling because it is absolute nonsense."
