Allan joined United from Larkhall Thistle. He was a regular in the reserves and had a tough time getting into a side that contained several good defenders. By the end of 1975-76, he was holding on to a regular place but following an injury late in 1976 he was sidelined and could not re-established himself in the line up. He was back in the reserve side and left United in July 1978, joining Raith Rovers for a fee of around 15,000
