One big surprise from Celtic’s first pre-season friendly was the inclusion of Scott Allan, not only to the squad but getting some real game time in Celtic’s win.
The midfielder has had no proper run in the side under Ronny Deila or Brendan Rodgers and has been shipped out on-loan often during his time at the club.
Allan found a home returning to Hibernian last season and spoke about a permanent deal with the Easter Road side in the latter part of last season’s campaign.
However, nothing has materialised and now he is getting a chance to show what he can do.
The midfielder played very well in Celtic’s victory and could he be set for a reprieve under Rodgers. These Celtic fans hope so.
I really hope Scott Allan does enough in pre-season to stop us selling him simply because him scoring for us at Ibrox would be the best trolling I’ve ever seen.— Kieren Kerr 🇳🇬🇨🇭 (@KierenKerr) June 27, 2018
I honestly thought we sold Scott Allan, hope he gets a run in the side but highly doubt it 🤷🏻♂️— Michael McGinley (@mickmcginley1) June 27, 2018
Kouassi not good enough for #Celtic … Scott Allan a better player than Ryan Christie IMO, good goal from Forrest and wee Morgan looked the part first half.— dmk1985 (@dmk1985) June 27, 2018
Celtic looking composed and well balanced.. Can't judge too much however Morgan and Scott Allan look as though they have a squad place this year..— Stevie O'Neil (@stevieoneil) June 27, 2018
Scott Allan deserves a chance tbh— 🙂 (@ReeceDurning) June 27, 2018
