Former Celtic goalie seals move to Aberdeen

Former Celtic goalkeeper Ross Doohan has sealed a return to the Scottish Premiership with a move to Aberdeen from Forest Green Rovers. Doohan becomes Barry Robson’s sixth summer signing as the goalkeeper signs on a two-year deal.

Robson wanted Doohan to push his current crop of goalkeepers. Kelle Roos is the recognised Number One at Pittodrie with veteran Joe Lewis also on the books. It is said that Robson wanted the former Celtic kid to bolster his ranks amongst homegrown and Scottish-trained players for UEFA competition.

Doohan, 25, who was tipped as a Celtic No.1-in-the-making having spent seven years on the books with the club, joined Tranmere on a permanent deal in July 2022. The stopper had a spell on loan with the Merseyside outfit.

The Scotland Youth Internationalist has spent spells at Cumbernauld Colts, Morton, Ayr, Ross County and Tramnere whilst never making a full appearance for Celtic. Doohan was signed by former Dundee United manager Micky Mellon, who stated that he was glad that the young goalie was making his move permanent. Although, after just six months on his permanent contract, Doohan made a £300k move to join Forest Green.

It is likely that FGR have had to take a hit on Doohan given their relegation and Aberdeen have taken full advantage.
