Photos: New Celtic signing Scott Allan poses with shirt after being paraded against Inverness

Celtic unveiled Scott Allan as their new signing earlier today.


Celtic have today paraded new signing Scott Allan, above, to the Bhoys faithful after the midfielder completed his move to Glasgow on Friday night.

The 23-year-old midfielder had starred for Hibernian last season, but with just one year left on his contract at Easter Road, speculation has surrounded his future all summer.

Now though, Allan has moved to Celtic, and will compete with the likes of Nir Bitton, Stefan Johansen, Tom Rogic and Scott Brown for a place in Ronny Deila's first team.

Before today's home game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Allan was paraded in front of the Celtic fans, wearing his new shirt for the crowd.

Allan has been given the number 19 shirt, and will be hoping to feature in the midweek Champions League clash against Malmo having completed his move.

After an impressive campaign last season, Celtic fans will rightly be excited to see their fifth summer signing in action, as he joins Logan Bailly, Saido Janko, Dedryck Boyata and Nadir Ciftci in Glasgow.

Manager Deila has once again added another talented young Scottish player, and Celtic fans will hope this is a regular occurrence in future transfer windows having signed Allan on Friday.
