Scott Allan, the 26-year-old Celtic midfielder enjoyed a good loan spell at Hibernian FC in the 2017-18 season and has certainly not miffed words regarding where he wants his future to lie. Allan was an important player for Neil Lennon in the latter half of the season as Hibs finished at a respectable fourth position in the Scottish Premiership.

In a recent interview, he clearly indicated that he wants to be associated with Hibs and believes that his overall game has gone up a notch after playing under Neil Lennon.

He said,” I’ve loved every minute here and I think I’ve become a better player since I’ve been back the second time.” He was previously part of the Edinburgh outfit in the 2014-15 season and later went on to join Celtic where he has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular. He was sent on loan in the January transfer window and he started in 12 games for Neil Lennon’s side in the second half of the season.”

He further added,” I’ve added goals to my game and work rate, all those types of things under the gaffer and it’s really been beneficial for me. The fans have taken to me again and that’s a big plus. Staying here would be my preferred option. It’s not just down to me – the clubs will need to come to an agreement.”


Allan still has a contract until 2019 with Celtic and it could be the right time for the Hoops to sell him so that they can get some transfer money instead of losing him for free next year. They have enough depth in the central midfield department and that is one of the reasons why Allan was allowed to go on loan. The likes of Olivier Ntcham, Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong have had a good season and Allan will struggle for game time if he continues his stint at Celtic Park.

Lennon himself went on to indicate that he will like to have the 26-year-old at his disposal for next season. He said, ”Scotty is obviously a Celtic player, so it’s great that he’d like to come back but that would be Celtic’s decision and not our s. He’s a player who blossomed again and had a fantastic second half of the season.’’

With Allan’s heart already set at Easter Road, Celtic should certainly let him go and a move will benefit both the parties if Allan goes on to join the Hibs on a permanent basis.
