    Just shows how incredibly talented the guy is to have these background medical conditions and still have had the career he has and still continuing to push for a start in a team sitting third in the top league in the country - Scottys an inspiration and were very lucky to have him!

    Admins 100% called it right.

    I knew it was a heart condition but I didn't know exactly what, I was told back in September that he wouldn't play again.

    Was later told that insurance company was involved and retirement due to ill health was on the cards but it all took time.

    More recently told that second opinions were being sought and then obviously he was back in the squad.

    Not saying for a minute all of what I was told was correct and to be honest it doesn't matter a jot if it was right or wrong.

    Important thing is Scott is back within touching distance to starting a game for Hibs, something a lot of people (including players) didn't think would happen.

    The worst thing I have ever witnessed on a football pitch was Alen Orman at Easter Road years ago when I thought I was witnessing something tragic.

    When it was announced that Scott was on his way back that was the first thing that sprang to my mind. However I am sure it wouldn't be allowed if he was in danger and we can look forward to his fantastic fight against the odds continue.

    Pretty Boy, feel free to delete or edit this post if you deem necessary.
    Heard the exact same thing as you Scoopyboy. I genuinely believe that after his first diagnosis was given retirement was definitely considered.

    Iím absolutely delighted the news is now so positive, from Scott Allanís perspective and from a selfish point of view because I want to see him back in a Hibs jersey again. Iíve never hidden my thoughts on him as a player, watching someone with his ability is why I love football.

    I would hope given time he will get back to his best and if possible will be an even better player and he will finally get the Scotland call up his talents deserve.

    The full interview is terrific. Luke Shanley is excellent at his job.
    The way everyone has managed this has been truly commendable but Scott is an inspiration. He seems to have taken everything in his stride and managed to turn it into a motivation.
    Heís also managed to spread awareness for both of his illnesses brilliantly and never looks for any sympathy, just keen to knuckle down and play football.
    The last question about the club almost had me going, thereís a real connection between Hibs and Scott Allan, delighted to see him back.

    Also, thereís a career in the media after football if he wants it, heís incredibly articulate and very likeable too!

    Hibs and Scott have conducted themselves with class though all of this. Well done to both but especially Scott. Wish the lad nothing but good luck in getting back into the side and playing regularly.

    Scott is one young man that can genuinely be held up as role model, he deserves so much credit for the way he has conducted himself.

    The extended interview is a wonderful listen. Scott Allan comes across as a humble and dignified man and has made the most of a career with so many health obstacles in the way.

    Really glad that Hibs managed the situation in the manner they did.

    I’m happy for him that he’s feeling great now. I wish supporters could have been there to welcome him back.
    If we are not there physically we can carry him in spirit high upon our shoulders.

    I am full of admiration for Scott for the way he has handled this issue and his determination to overcome both health issues.

    It is such a shame that he canít walk out to a packed Easter Road tomorrow so that we could express our love and support.

    Can it be treated?
    From his interview it can be monitored and managed which is similar to his diabetes.
    He was fortunate to get a warning from his body and importantly switched on enough not to ignore it.
    The interview is very positive and there is even a chance his performances could improve given he has refined his diet and as such is taking even greater care of his diabetes. He is also aware of the condition now which he states is at the milder end of the spectrum so all as good an outcome as he and we could have hoped for.
    It really is amazing that he has been able to play at the standard he has, given he will have had this issue the whole of his career and the difference between a good and great player can be as simple as a tiny bit more stamina or speed.

    Incredible to think what heís been through medically. He says heís not fit and needs games so why did Ross play him in the semi final?
    I think it was good man management.
    The manager decided to give Scott something tangible to show him he really was on the way back.
    The game was humped so he pulled something positive out of it.

    If people like the idea, I've found a website that allows you to create a "virtual greetings card" where people can add their own contribution and message, photo etc like on a birthday or greetings card going round an office. Started it off at https://my.kindeo.com/contribute/vpdkpecv3kc7apw if people think it'd be a good idea, then we could send it onto the club?

    If people think it's got legs as an idea, I'll start a new thread. Would be nice to give everyone a chance to welcome the big man back to action

    That's a great idea. Sadly, I feel I should advise against. Non-Hibs people will likely abuse it if they can access it.

    Indeed. Though I'm not sure many would still have been in Hampden by the time he came on even if fans were allowed...

    Great interview by Luke S on Sky - this is the long version - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IURhRCKBZu8

    Scott Allan, and Hibs have managed this very well, he saw 3 specialists.

    I truly hope to see him back at top form................but as always, his health is the first priority.

    Agree with all of that. Scott Allan and Hibs just clicked from day one and I can't wait to see him back playing again for a club you can tell he regards as his natural home. It's very exciting to think we have a player of his calibre waiting in the wings. I know he's played many games for Hibs over the last few years but it's like having a brilliant new signing just waiting to be unveiled.

    I think the admins on the site should be commended for the way they controlled the story on here. Hibs and Scott clearly wanted a level of privacy and to control the narrative. Folk speculating about what was wrong wouldn't help that. So well done. And also well done to Hibs and Scott. Hope he is back soon as possible



    iirc, there was also a lot of borderline snidey comments being made about the admins in regards to trying to minimise the conversation and speculation on here about SAís condition, so well done to the admins not only for how they handled the situation but also doing that in the face of how they were spoken about on here

    good news about Scott, whatever happens going forward I hope that he and his loved ones are happy and healthy

    Great news for the young man, now perhaps the gossips and the nosey ones will just mind there own business. (Although I doubt it) some of the gossips on here will realise that somethingís are just not for the nosey ones to know and gossip about over the washing line.

    Spot on.

    While I'm obviously especially pleased that the story is about a very talented Hibs player battling through a potentiallly career-ending affliction, I'd be pleased for any footballer (or indeed any sportsman or woman) in such circumstances no matter what club they played for. However on the BBC Scotland live football feed this afternoon, the number of folk who have decided to select the 'thumbs down' on this story bewilders me. Why would you do that?

    Great interview. It must be really difficult for an athlete to live on a low carb diet, I am a T1 myself and not an athlete, in fact I'm probably the polar opposite to an athlete and it is difficult enough for me. To have these two conditions and to still have the desire and drive to play and succeed at the top level of football in this country is testament to his character. Can't wait for him to be slipping beautiful passes through to our strikers once again.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Scott is a credit to himself and the club...I hope he can get back to his previous form...

    Looking forward to a Scott Allan pass. Club and Scott have handled this impeccably.

    What an incredibly brave guy , a credit to his family and himself.
    Brilliant the way the club have rallied round as well .
    Good luck to the guy not only in football but in life outside it.
    A real role model

    Admins,
    Forgive me if this comes across as pushy.

    I wondered if the Scott Allan thread about his interview could maybe be closed - so the Northernhibee thread with electronic message to Scott doesnít get lost or overlooked?

    Just a thought.

    If Northern wants it closed then happy to help but think most folk can work it out to be honest.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I don't mind and that wasn't what's intended - happy for both to be open and I'll manage it with a couple of bumps here and there.
