McAllister back with Blades
Shrewsbury midfielder David McAllister has returned to parent club Sheffield United after suspension cut short his loan spell.
McAllister had been on loan at Greenhous Meadow since January and had recently extended his temporary stint with the Shrews. However, he was sent-off against Aldershot and a subsequent appeal has failed, meaning he will three games, taking him past the expiry date of his loan.
"It's really disappointing. I've loved my time at Shrewsbury and I felt I was getting better and better every game," he told BBC Shropshire. "It still rankles. If there'd been a different camera angle you'd see there was no contact made and they (Aldershot) didn't call for a sending off. I'd just extended the loan and I would have loved to be at Shrewsbury until the end of it."
The Irishman feels that the move helped him settle in his new homeland and is tipping both Shrewsbury and Sheffield United to both make the step up to the next division.
"It's been a very positive move to play here. I only came over to England last year from Ireland and to really get a nice run of first-team games has helped me.
"They're (Shrewsbury) definitely up there with the top teams in the division and I think they'll go up, as I think Sheffield United will, to the Championship," he added.
