Celtic are braced for interest in winger Scott Allan this summer, according to a report.

League One promotion hopefuls Wigan are closely monitoring the Celtic attacking midfielder ahead of the forthcoming window.

The Scottish Sun report that Wigan manager Gary Caldwell is preparing to offer Allan a one-year deal.

It comes 12 months after the English outfits were one of a number of clubs to miss out on the 24-year-old when he decided to leave Hibernian.

Celtic snapped up Allan on a four-year contract despite competing interest from Wigan, Rotherham and Rangers.

However, the Glasgow-born winger, who was named the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year at the end of last season, has spent the season on the fringes of Ronny Deila’s side.

Allan has made 16 appearances but only two of them have been starts and he has not been able to secure a place on the substitute’s bench for a month.

Nottingham Forest, QPR and Leeds have also been linked with him.

In other Celtic news, the club have agreed to pay off flop winger Derk Boerrigter and terminate his contract three months early.
