Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan has been looking back at his time at Celtic – and it is fair to say that he hasn’t held back in his opinions.

The player returned to Easter Road after four seasons at Celtic where he failed to make much of an impact.

Allan felt that he deserved a chance to show what he could do for the Hoops last season, but it wasn’t to be, a situation he described as ‘strange’.

“It was a bit strange,” he said, as reported by the BBC.

“I deserved at least a chance”

“I felt, over the season, I deserved at least a chance, but there ended up not even being a chance.”

He then reflected on his time overall at the club.

“It just wasn’t to be at Celtic. I wouldn’t change anything. I went there believing that I was good enough to at least get a run in the team.”

If there was any time that Allan would have got into the Hoops side in recent seasons it would have been at the start of last season. The team were struggling to find form under then boss Brendan Rodgers.

However, it was not to be for the player as he failed to get anywhere near the team. In that case, it is easy to see why he was unhappy about not getting a chance.

Transfers don’t always work out in football, and now he is at a team where he will play every week, which was not going to happen at Celtic.
