Scott Robertson has backed Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs to get the best out of his former Dundee United team-mate Scott Allan.
The ex-Tannadice midfielder signed a two-year deal with the Capital club after seeing a move to English outfit West Bromwich Albion turn sour.
But Allan has returned to Scotland determined to capture the form which had former West Brom boss Roy Hodgson chasing his signature and Robertson believes Stubbs is the man to help him do that.
He said: “Scott has undoubted quality, he really does, with the ball he’s an exceptional talent and boys like him will flourish at this club. The manager tries to get the best out of people by believing in them rather than belittling them.
“I think with the management team now the club’s going in the right direction, so it’s a good time to be here.”
