Doohan signs on loan from Celtic

4 August 2021

Tranmere Rovers are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Ross Doohan on a season long loan from Celtic.

The promising young shot stopper, who spent time on loan with Micky Mellon at Dundee United last term, will link up with his new team mates ahead of the first game of the season against Walsall.

Doohan, who has recently signed a new contract at his parent club, will add further competition in the goalkeeping department, with Club captain Scott Davies still side-lined through injury.

Mellon said: “Ross is a great signing, and he will provide further competition due to Scotty’s injury. He is a talented goalkeeper, and we are delighted he has joined us for the season.

“Together, with Joe, we have two fantastic goalkeepers ahead of the new season. I worked with him at Dundee United towards the end of last season, he has huge potential, and he signed a new contract at Celtic recently because they rate him so highly.

“He is ready to take the next step in his career, so I am delighted we have an excellent all-round goalkeeper and a good person to add to the group.

“To work with Joe Murphy and Lee Jones, who is an excellent goalkeeping coach, it is a great fit for Ross, and he will provide great competition. We are very grateful to Celtic for allowing us to take on loan one of their fantastic prospects.”

We will hear from our new signing on Thursday after his first training session as a Tranmere Rovers player.

Ross is now available to sponsor for the 2021/22 season. For further information, please email debbieq@tranmererovers.co.uk.
