Alexander Robertson says Ross County have provided him with a ‘terrific opportunity’ after joining on loan from Manchester City.

The teenager trained with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City first-team last season but the midfielder moves to Dingwall for the 2021/22 cinch Premiership season. Robertson believes it’ll be a ‘physical’ test, but one he is looking forward to.

He said (HNM): “It is a terrific opportunity for me coming to Ross County and everyone has been really welcoming. I just can’t wait to play in front of the fans. Last season was one full of learning curves. I want to build on that and this is the next step for me.

“The U23s and the Checktrade Trophy last season gave me a taste of playing against men. Scotland should be quite physical, but that’s something I’m ready for – I grew up watching the league and that’s a part of the game I enjoy. I like to get stuck in, so I’m looking forward to it.”

 

Elsewhere, Ross County have completed the signing of Austrian midfielder David Cancola on a free transfer from Slovan Liberec, subject to completion of the Visa process. Cancola signed a pre-contract following a successful trial period with County in January.
