Ross County have secured the signature of Ross Doohan on a season-long loan deal from Celtic ahead of the new campaign.
Doohan has featured in Celtic’s pre-season plans this term but found himself playing against them last week. He was a Staggies trialist as Stuart Kettlewell’s side faced the Hoops in a pre-season friendly.
With Scott Bain, Conor Hazard and new signing Vasilis Barkas to choose from between the sticks at Celtic Park, Doohan’s going to Dingwall for experience.
Premiership chance for Doohan
County kick off their 2020/21 campaign with a home match against Motherwell. The first-choice spot last season floated between Ross Laidlaw and Nathan Baxter, who was on loan from Chelsea.
The latter was the number one when fit so it’s likely it’ll be the same for Doohan as he travels north. He is the second Celtic player in as many seasons to opt for the Highlands after Ewan Henderson’s loan move last summer.
Kettlewell has been busy in the transfer market this summer. He’s brought in Carl Tremarco, Connor Randall, Regan Charles-Cook, Alex Iacovitti, Stephen Kelly and now Doohan.
The on-loan Celtic keeper has impressed in the Championship with Ayr during loan spells in the second tier. Now he’s got his chance in the top flight.
