Tranmere sign Doohan on permanent deal

Tranmere Rovers has announced the signing of Ross Doohan for an undisclosed fee from Celtic.

The goalkeeper helped Rovers earn 21 clean sheets in League Two last season, the joint best in the division, whilst on loan at Prenton Park and now signs a two-year contract with the Club plus a further year option.

The 24-year-old has been at Scottish side Celtic since 2016 and has enjoyed various loan spells in his native country before gaining vital experience with Rovers last season and impressing throughout the campaign.

Ross now pens a contract at Prenton Park until at least the summer of 2024 and will join up with the rest of the squad for start of the 2022/23 season.

After returning to the Club, Ross said, “I’m really pleased to get it all sorted now. I really enjoyed it here last season so I feel this is a great step in my career.”

“I know how the Club works and the stature of it with the training facilities, the stadium and the fan base. Having a great relationship with the Gaffer and with Joe Murphy was another big factor for me.

“I didn’t take much convincing at all, as soon as I heard that there was interest I wanted to come back. I can’t wait to get going again.”

Manager Micky Mellon added, “We’re delighted to bring Ross in permanently. He’s a fantastic young goalkeeper and someone who we know very well.

“We know what qualities he can bring to the group and we believe that he can keep improving and developing here with us. We’re really looking forward to working with him again.”
