Yet despite having TWO transfer windows to bring Allan back to Easter Road, Lenny decided to look elsewhere and was content to get the player to sign a pre-contract deal.

NEIL LENNON plans to give Hibs bound midfielder Scott Allan some game-time at Celtic before he leaves for an Easter Road re-union at the end of May.

If the pre-contract has been terminated prior to when it is due to take effect, then the DRC has been reluctant to find that the pre-contract is binding, whilst if the parties have already begun to perform their obligations under the pre-contract prior to any termination, then this is usually evidence to prove that the parties intended to be bound by the terms of the pre-contract.



Allan’s last competitive first team game was in the 5-5 draw between Hibs and the Rangers on the last day of last season when the midfielder was on loan from Celtic and Lennon was the Hibs manager.

“The difference between a pre-contract and a contract is that the parties to the pre-contract have not agreed the essential terms and so the pre-contract does not reflect the final agreement.

I would like to give him some game time and a few others as well.” The Edinburgh Evening News recently carried an article titled “Could Scott Allan’s pre-contract agreement to join Hibs be broken?” They noted the situation that developed between Hibs and Celtic back in 2007 when the Hibs player Darren McCormack agreed a move to Celtic with his contract up at the end of the season.

“In an attempt to release themselves from the obligations under a pre-contract, parties have attempted to allege that the validity of a pre-contract was conditional upon a player successfully completing a medical or obtaining a work permit.
