Tranmere Rovers are interested in signing Celtic goalkeeper Ross Doohan, a report from The Glasgow Evening Times has revealed.
A graduate of Celtic’s academy, Doohan has made just four first-team appearances for the club, spending much of his time out on loan elsewhere.
The most recent of those loan spells saw him spend last season on loan at Dundee United, where he was managed by Micky Mellon, who is now in charge at Tranmere.
It now seems as though Mellon is keen on a reunion with Doohan, despite the fact that the goalkeeper made just two appearances for Dundee United last season.
According to this latest update, Tranmere are keen to sign the 23-year-old, as they look to add a new goalkeeping option to their squad.
However, Tranmere may have to wait to find out if they can get a deal done. It is thought that Celtic manager Ange Postecoglu will assess his goalkeeping options next week, before deciding whether any will be allowed to leave this summer.
Having been beaten by eventual promotion winners Morecambe in last season’s League Two play-off semi finals, Tranmere will once again be targeting promotion to League One in the coming campaign.
This could be a decent signing for Tranmere you feel.
While they do still have the likes of Scott Davies and Joe Murphy on the books as options between the posts, at 34 and 39 respectively, those players may be approaching the latter stages of their careers now.
As a result, it could make sense for Tranmere to look to bring in a longer-term option, and at 23-years-old, Doohan would certainly provide that.
Indeed, given it is also hard to see Doohan forcing his way into the Celtic starting XI this season, it could make sense for the Scottish giants to allow him to move on this summer, in order to get the regular football he needs to get the most out of his career.
As a result, I wouldn’t be too surprised if a deal such as this did happen at some point this summer.
