Scott Allan’s former team-mate Scott Robertson thinks that the player will be a huge success in his return to Easter Road next season.

Allan is returning to Hibs on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell two seasons ago. He also had a first spell at the club which won him a move to Celtic. Robertson thinks Allan can build on that spell and become an even better player.

“The main man”

“He just needs to replicate the form that he showed during both of his spells at the club and have two or three good seasons where he is the main man” he said, as reported by Edinburgh Live.

“He will be in an environment where he will be idolised as a player all over again. Scott can become the great player that he has been threatening to be for so long now.”

Was superb in previous spell at club

The promising thing for Hibs is that Allan was superb in his loan spell a few years ago.

That was despite him not being selected for Celtic. That could mean that when he returns next season, he could still keep his form even though he has not played first-team football for almost a year.

It will be intriguing to see how Allan works with Hibs head coach Paul Heckingbottom. Heckingbottom could make Allan the centrepiece of the side. If he does, it could be a very promising season for Hibs next year.
