Prior to him going off with his heart problem he played in most of the games this season. He also played in the majority of games after Ross took over in November 2019 till the end of that season. I really don't think it is the case that Ross doesn't rate him. Any manager would love to have a player of his quality playing regularly at his full peak of fitness, but he needs to be playing regularly now having missed so much football in the last year as well as dealing with all the restrictions in his rehabilitation.
Aye I don’t get the “Ross doesn’t rate him” stuff either, Allan played a lot of football under Jack Ross before the health issue. The manager also said he didn’t want to lose him from the group.
I think it’s more about the player himself recognising he’s physically not where he needs to be to break into the team right now, and dropping down a level short term to get his fitness back. To me that shows great character from Scott Allan.
Had this been a normal season, with regular reserve/bounce games happening, I think Allan would have been able get much closer to full match fitness and sharpness.
