While the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern are far more focused on first-team affairs, they are interested to know how their array of loanees are getting on.
During Brendan Rodgers’ reign in charge of the Bhoys, the former Liverpool coach has shown an ability to develop talents previously out in the cold, so the Bhoys in our bar believe any loanee will have a chance under his watch at least one day.
With that in mind, reports from the Scotsman have had our resident Hoops discussing the fate of Scott Allan. Currently on loan at Dundee, the playmaker has reportedly gone under the knife in an attempt to fix an ongoing groin injury, after picking up the problem in a defeat to Rangers.
A Dundee spokesperson could not give an estimate on how long Allan would be out.
It’s a blow for the 25-year-old, who is struggling to capitalise on the sort of potential he showed at Hibernian in the Scottish Championship under Alan Stubbs. Though clearly a talented player, it’s just not worked out for the Glaswegian since leaving Easter Road for Celtic back in 2015.
Allan probably left Hibs far too soon. He was only just finding his feet for the Hibees prior to his departure and his latest injury could seriously impact his time at Dens Park, where he went to try and sort himself out.
