Hibs star Scott Allan is being touted for the Ballon d'Or by gushing supporters after he provided a terrific assist against Rangers at Ibrox.

The midfield ace slipped Daryl Horgan in behind the Ibrox defence in Sunday's Premiership clash with a sublime reverse ball.

Gers boss Steven Gerrard even hailed the assist as one he'd have been proud of during his time at Liverpool in the post-match of Rangers' eventual 6-1 annihilation of their opponents.

But despite being on the wrong end of a thrashing by a rampant Light Blues outfit, Hibees have chosen to praise Allan's pass as the one shining light from a game that had very few other plus points.

And their player has been number one trend in the country as fans urged FIFA to take note.

One said: "If Scott Allan isn't shortlisted for the ballon d'or then it will be the biggest injustice to football ever".

Another laughed: "Think what we need here is Scott Allan to be given the Ballon D’or, a Knighthood & the freedom of Edinburgh for that pass when his team got pumped 6-1 & it was the only thing he did in the entire 90 minutes..."

One joked: "Is Scott Allan’s assist DVD out yet? Asking for a friend".

A fourth added: "Whens Hibs opentop bus for Scott Allan's pass?"

Gers star Jermain Defoe bagged a hat-trick and Morelos scored twice before Sheyi Ojo completed the rout at Ibrox on Sunday.
