Allan was a schoolboy international who joined United on an 'S' form from Hutchison Vale. He was quickly called up for United reserves, becoming part of the Scotland youth squad by season 1985-86. During his eight years with United, Allan was a regular in the second string but he only turned out in the first team occasionally. In October 1992, he left United to join Hearts, along with £215,000 in exchange for Scott Crabbe.
