Tranmere sign Doohan on loan from Celtic

Tranmere Rovers has announced 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 teammates 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.”
