English League Two side keen on loan deal for Celtic goalkeeper

Tranmere Rovers are reportedly keen on taking Celtic goalkeeper Ross Doohan on loan for the upcoming season. New boss Micky Mellon wants to give the player that he worked with at Tannadice the chance to play first-team football in England’s League Two.

According to The Daily Record’s Scott Burns, the 23-year-old is currently out with a minor knock but as soon as he has fully recovered, he will likely depart the club on loan. Doohan has spent loan spells at Ayr United and Ross County as well as Dundee United but is still behind Vasilis Barkas, Scott Bain and Conor Hazard in the pecking order at the club.

Doohan and Hazard have been tipped as being future Celtic No.1’s but both players need exposure playing regular football. Doohan has made 95 appearances at club level and will be hoping to build upon previous loan spells and put himself in contention with a place in between the goals at Paradise in the not-too-distant future.

Dundee United are also said to be monitoring Doohan after the youngster spent some time at Tannadice last year should Ben Siegrist be sold this summer. The Arabs signed Trevor Carson on a free transfer from Motherwell to compete with Siegrist for the No.1 jersey.
