Scott Allan seeing a future for himself at the top level

On loan Celtic midfielder Scott Allan has revealed to The Glasgow Evening Times that he is foreseeing a future for himself at the top level.

The 26-year-old moved to Hibernian on a half-season loan deal last month after his short spell at Dundee during the first half of the campaign ended.

And Allan, who signed for Celtic in 2015 under Ronny Deila, was a big part of Hibs victory over Aberdeen this past weekend.

This outstanding performance has given rise to the news that he might be ready to return to Celtic this summer and impress Brendan Rodgers, whom he hasn’t played under since the Northern Irishman arrived in May 2016.

And judging by his recent comments, Allan appears to be full of confidence that he could return to Parkhead a much-improved player when his loan deal comes to an end.

“I believe so. In terms of creativity, Aberdeen had a guy following me about the park for the first 45 minutes and I still made things happen,” he told The GET when asked if he could perform at a top level in the future.

“That’s my game and I can play it as well as anybody.”

Celtic fans probably haven’t witnessed the best of Allan, having only played 12 premiership games for the Hoops during his debut season – and one of those was from the start.

But he seems to be in incredible form and if he believes that he can catch Rodgers’ attention then he could probably make a name for himself in the Scottish Premier League next season.
