JAMES FORREST reckons Scott Allan’s boyhood allegiances will not be a problem for the Celtic support.
The 23-year-old agreed a four-year deal with the SPFL champions after moving from Hibs last night.
Allan, who was a fan of Paul Gascoigne when he watched the Ibrox side as a kid, was also the subject of three recent small bids from Mark Warburton.
Now, though, the skilful midfielder has admitted it will be an “honour” to wear the famous green and white hoops.
Forrest, a former Scotland Under-21 team-mate of Allan, is sure the player, who started his career at Dundee United, will have no problem in being accepted by Celtic fans.
The winger said: “Once you start playing games then everything gets forgotten about.
“I am sure the fans will be right behind him because he will be a really good player for Celtic.
“Obviously, I know him coming through the youths. He has got a lot of flair, good going forward and technically really good.
“He is a type of player Celtic look for and he will fit in well.
“A massive club like Celtic are always looking to bring in players of top quality and I am sure Scotty can do really well.
“It keeps everyone on their toes and keeps the standards high in training and in games.”
The Celtic support will this afternoon show Scott Allan that he is very welcome at Paradise and that he is now very much one of the Bhoys.
