Scott Allan completes Hibs return

Last updated : 20 June 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today, finally, confirmed the signing of midfielder Scott Allan for a third spell with the club.

Allan returns from Celtic after he signed a pre-contract agreement to re-join the Hibees in January.

The 27-year-old follows fellow new boys Adam Jackson and Joe Newell in arriving at Easter Road this summer.

Speaking to the official club website, he said:

"It’s nice to be back. Before signing the pre-contract, I’d obviously heard for a few months beforehand that Hibs were still interested and everyone knew that I wanted to come back here.

"As soon as January came around and I got speaking to George Craig and Leeann Dempster again it was an easy choice to make. We tried to get it done in January. It wasn’t to be and I had to wait a few months but I’m just happy to be back."
