Queen’s Park manager Ray McKinnon has snapped up another Celtic youngster, signing 19-year-old goalkeeper Ryan Mullen on loan until the end of the season.

The Spiders are back in action this weekend against Stranraer after League Two was shutdown in January due to a surge in Covid-19 cases. McKinnon has moved to strengthen with two additions from Celtic.

Mullen arrives to provide competition in the goalkeeper department while Luca Connell will add strength to McKinnon’s midfield, the Irish youth international highly-rated at Celtic. They join fellow Parkhead youngster Brody Paterson in Mount Florida.

McKinnon said:: “I am absolutely delighted to get both deals over the line and get the players in for what is going to be a very busy period ahead. We have needed cover in the goalkeeping position and have been actively looking for some time.

“It’s very pleasing to have the opportunity to bring Ryan in. The acquisition of both players really does strengthen the squad for the run in.”
