Scott Allan declared himself unconcerned with any negative reactions to his move to Celtic as he stressed the switch to the Scottish champions was easily the best for his career.

The boyhood Rangers fan submitted a transfer request to Hibernian last month amid several bids from Ibrox, but Hibs refused to sell to their Championship rivals and Allan jumped at the chance to join Celtic when they made their move last week.

The 23-year-old said: "When I heard off my agent that Celtic were interested, for me it was an easy decision. To step up a league, the chance of European football, and to develop as a player, that's why my decision was made.

"I just made it on football terms, I wasn't really bothered about what came with it. I know I will get a lot of stick off some people but for me it's about playing football, developing, and this is the right place for me."

Allan agreed that the importance of his boyhood allegiances had been exaggerated.

"My job is a football player," said the midfielder, who hopes to be involved in the Champions League qualifier against Malmo tomorrow.

"You need to look out for your best interests and that's what I have done by coming to Celtic."

When asked whether he would still live in Glasgow, Allan showed no sign of fearing any comeback over his decision.

"Of course," he said. "I'm from Glasgow. I don't want to live somewhere else."
