SCOTT ALLAN admits he has no regrets over his move to Celtic following yesterday’s agreement to spend next season on loan at Dundee.
The 25-year-old midfielder, who arrived in a cut-price £300,000 deal from Hibs two years ago, spent the last campaign with relegated Championship side Rotherham.
But, despite the lack of first team football at Parkhead, Allan says he has no misgivings about joining the champions and, with his contract due to expire in June 2019, hopes he still has the opportunity to impress Brendan Rodgers.
He said: “That would be a bonus on top of just trying to do well for myself and the club and maybe even getting a Cup run or a top six finish.
“That is the main aim, of course. I wouldn’t say I’ve been disappointing with my time at Celtic, I got a winner’s medal in my first year and learned a lot from Brendan Rodgers during pre-season.
“I took the decision to go on loan, so I’ve learned a lot from him and I have no regrets.”
Allan was unveiled by Dens Park boss Neil McCann yesterday and the playmaker, who started his career at Dundee United in 2010, reckons he can add goals and creativity to the team.
He added: “I don’t think I have to prove anything to anyone. I just think it’s about being happy and that is by kicking a ball about very Saturday.
“I wouldn’t say it’s about resurrection. It’s just about getting back to playing football.
“I don’t think there is any doubts about what I can do when I’m playing.”
