ALAN STUBBS has told Scott Allan he needs to quit Celtic in January – even if it’s just a loan deal to run down the clock on his contract.
Stubbs brought Allan to Hibernian back when he was the boss at Easter Road which eventually lead to the midfielder joining Celtic under Ronny Deila.
However, the former West Brom man has seen very little game time under Deila or Rodgers.
The player has only managed 17 appearances for the bhoys and played a total of 516 minutes in all competitions.
Since joining Celtic the player has spent three spells out on loan; first at Rotherham, followed by Dundee then Hibs.
There was hope at Easter Road the club would do a deal to sign Allan last summer but they couldn’t afford to.
With just over 6 months left of his Celtic deal, the midfielder has a big decision to make but Stubbs believes he must act swiftly to save his career.
“He needs to be playing, wherever that is, whether it’s at Celtic or out somewhere else,” Stubbs said to BT Sports.
“It’s not doing him any favours being there, especially with the way that the loan window is now. It is every six months and you’ve got to be out.
“It’s not doing Brendan any favours. He’s too good. I’m surprised he hasn’t gone out.”
