Ross Doohan is expected to join Tranmere Rovers this week.

The keeper was in the Celtic squad that travelled to Midtjylland last week but with Joe Hart signing and Conor Hazard fit again he didn’t fly out with the squad to face Jablonec tonight.

Last season Celtic sent Lee O’Connor on loan to Tranmere with new boss Micky Mellon taking Doohan on loan to Dundee United at the end of last season.

Last night The Herald reports:

Ross Doohan will complete his loan move from Celtic to Tranmere this week. The reserve goalkeeper has not had a look in despite the Hoops’ woes between the sticks.

And his chances were not improved when Joe Hart completed his signing at Parkhead yesterday afternoon. Micky Mellon, meanwhile, is a big fan of the 23-year-old having taken him on loan to Dundee United last season.

Herald and Times Sport understands Doohan will complete his medical at Prenton Park tomorrow morning and become a member of the squad later this week.

Doohan enjoyed two successful seasons on loan at Ayr United where he was first choice in League One followed by a season in The Championship.

A loan to Ross County last season saw him make five appearances before being recalled by Celtic when Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain had to self-isolate following the training trip to Dubai.

With his current contract running until May 2022 Doohan will probably extend his contract before completing his loan deal to Tranmere.
