    What does?

    Lots of players not made the great at Celtic Iíd happily take at Hibs, theyíre a considerably better side than us.
    Of course. However Scott Allan that has been at Hibs twice and performed twice is quite possibly the best midfielder in Scotland. He should have been more than good enough for them.

    Regardless of the league we were playing in I donít think there was many better at the time. Iím not sure who Celtic had at that point but Iíd be pretty comfortable with saying he was better than anything Hearts, Rangers or Aberdeen had to offer and if thatís the case heíd most likely been better than all the Ďsmallerí teams midfielders aswell.

    Is there? I hadnít heard of any others.

    Danny Mcgrane and Gary Mabbutt were the only other players I knew of that had it, any other ones in Scotland do you know?
    Off the top of my head thereís Nacho (Real Madrid centre back) and another young Real player whoís name escapes me. I think Alan Kernaghan was diabetic and also a few players in the lower leagues down south. Think Scott the only one playing pro football in Scotland with it.

    Jay Cutler, Quarterback with the Bears was diagnosed in the middle of his career and youíd see him doing blood tests etc on the sidelines. Plenty folk with type 1 throughout the sporting world it would seem.

    On the form he showed second half of last season at us heíd be right up there with anything else on show in Scotland. Thatís the last weíve seen of him of course.

    Is Kenny Millar signing for an SPFL team or is he staying in the Championship? 😉
    It could only be for Rotherham United.

    If I remember rightly St Mirren had quite a good midfielder at the time, name escapes me though...

    Iíd still suspect Allan was one of the best in the country at the time. And if thereís any doubt as to whether he was in the Championship then there can be none as to whether he was last time at us.

    Iím sorry but no. Big fan of Scotty but to suggest he is a better player than any of the Celtic side who kept him picking splinters from his backside ie Rogic, Mcgregor doesnít stand up to scrutiny. These guys have been the stand out players in the treble treble winning side.

    Magic player at our level, just not as consistent, physically strong or defensively reliable as others.

    IMO he wonít force his way into the Scotland squad either.

    His performances at Hibs were imo better than anything Iíve saw those you mentioned deliver over similar lengths of time. Guys like Rogic are great players on their day, but heís often absolutely anonymous aswell. Allan at us second half of last season was outstanding for the vast majority of it imo.

    Of course these guys have done it for their whole careers, but Iím only talking about his time at Hibs.

    From what Iíve saw of Celtic recently they have hardly turned it on this year, never mind every week.

    The vast majority of people all agreed Celtic had been absolutely garbage since Lennon took over months ago. If you want to claim that these guys turned it on every week then go for it. If they all turned it on every week though then nobody would have been saying how bad Celtic had been. Including the Celtic fans who do actually see their team every week.

    McGregor clearly is a good player and one who developed under Rodgers, he can also play in different positions in midfield. However ability wise I donít think heís any better than Scott Allan who if he plays to the same levels as the last spell with us should definitely get picked for Scotland. Iím struggling to think of a Scottish midfielder who can split open a defence like he can.

    Also having watched last two Scotland games I donít think Mcgregor was particularly impressive.

    Cannot wait to see Scott back.. just thinking about both of his spells and some of the games he dominated on his own.. The semi we lost against Falkirk he was magnificent as well as the 4-0 rangers game. What a player he is on his day.

    Celtic fans who see their team every week also say that the reason Scott Allan never got a game for them was because they had better options ahead of him in the queue.

    But again, I was talking about his performances at Hibs, not his performances during 5 minute cameos for Celtic once in a blue moon.

    I never referenced his performances at Celtic. I referenced the better players ahead of him. As is my point, there are better midfielders in the Scottish game, who have consistently produced at a high level over the past few years.

    Delighted to have him back at Hibs, but realistically, he will find it very hard to displace anyone in the Scotland midfield.

    Well agree to disagree. In my opinion the performances put in by SA last season at us were by and large better than the vast majority of performances Iíve saw Rogic or McGregor produce.

    Not taking anything away from those performances from Scotty. Was a magic time to be a Hibs fan. Itís clear you hold Scott in high regard, as do I.

    To put into context though, Mcgregor and Rogic have had countless MOM performances, in cup finals, Europe, old firm games. These are facts. Not opinion.

    Scott Allan struggle to get a game for Scotland? Imo he should be first pick and then build the team around him. Great player.

    For what itís worth I totally agree with you btw, scotty is undoubtedly one of the best midfielders Iíve ever seen at ER (not just hibs, either)
