    I wondered what had happened to him as whenever I saw him I see him produce match winning moments so I was thinking "surely he's not warming the bench somewhere considering his talent" but now it makes sense. GET WELL SOON ALLAN!

    Horrible watch to see the emotion in his eyes. This will make him a better motivated version of himself though. wish him all the best.

    That’s the heart condition that the press said killed Phil O’Donnel. It didn’t, he did die of a heart condition but it wasn’t heart wall thickening.

    Hard enough being a diabetic and a pro footballer. Scott gets a lot of stick of signing for Celtic and being a rangers fan. Not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed myself as I rate him highly when on form. Good luck Scott and god speed 💙

  • Blair 123

    As much as i couldn’t stand the guy after moving to Celtic , the fact the guys gonna push through and hopefully get the most out of his career is a credit to himself. Footballs a short career and if you were to hear that your dreams could be cut short would be devastating for anybody. Good luck lad

    I would liked to have seen him move to Rangers, unfortunately (for him and for us) it never happened although his physical and mental health outweighs all the footballing decisions. I hope you recover, Scott and enjoy every minute you have on the park. Good luck.

    Sorely missed just for the pure entertainment and thrill of watching him play. Great to hear he's on the mend ... and for the 2 'thumbs down' givers... Have a good hard look in a mirror and ask yourself how low you have to be to carry such hatred in your heart, simply because he might have scored a goal against your team. You could have watched the vid (though I doubt you did) and moved on, but you went out of your way and chose to 'dislike'. What a pair of lowlifes
