And, after snubbing overtures from the direction of Govan, the 23-year-old midfielder is determined to get started with the four-in-a-row champions.
Boss Ronny Deila insists he’ll have to earn his place and isn’t guaranteed to go straight into the squad for Wednesday night’s crucial Champions League play-off against Malmo in Glasgow.
But, sporting the No.19 shirt once worn by the iconic Stan Petrov, Allan said: “It’s unbelievable, this is a great opportunity to join a massive club.
“I’ll try my hardest to be a great player here. In football terms, coming here was a no-brainer.”
“He was very keen to come to Celtic and we had a very good conversation.”
However, Deila was coy on Allan’s chances of an appearance against the Swedes in midweek.
He added: “We’ll see. I think we can add him to the squad. But I don’t think he’s going to go straight in – hardly anyone has done that.
“Scott isn’t going to come in here and be the king from the first minute, no-one is expecting that.”
