Scott Allan sets out his aim at Celtic

The midfielder wants to get involved as much as possible at Parkhead.

Celtic midfielder Scott Allan is aiming to get involved with the first team as much as possible in the coming weeks, according to the club's official website.

The 24-year-old joined Celtic from Hibernian this summer and is looking forward to a busy Christmas period.

And the midfielder wants to spend as much time as possible on the pitch for the Scottish champions.

Allan told the Celtic View: "You enjoy this time of year. If you’re a fan you kind of take football with Christmas now as well, watching the games and being part of what you love doing, so I don’t think you can complain.

"I want to take the chance and get involved as much as possible by getting on the park. That’s what it’s all about as a football player."

Allan featured for the Bhoys against Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday night, where more disappointment greeted Celtic's European campaign.

Ronny Deila's men couldn't even finish off with a win, despite the manager's suggestion that the draw showed the fight Celtic possess. Celtic ended their group campaign without a single win, drawing with Fenerbahce on Thursday night after Liverpool loanee Lazar Markovic opening the scoring for the Turkish side.

Europa League failure is now best forgotten, though, with a domestic treble no doubt the aim for Celtic as Deila's side look to make amends for plenty of early-season frustration.

The Bhoys travel to St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
