With Celtic signing €4.5million Greek international keeper Vasilis Barkas from AEK Athens this week, it now allows young keeper Ross Doohan to complete his move to Ross County and further his development.
The 22 year old had impressed in Celtic’s pre-season and a loan move was already in place but Lennon had to wait until he officially signed a replacement for Fraser Forster with the big Greek Barkas finally becoming a Hoops player.
This now allows the Hoops prospect to move to Ross County and get some much needed game time which was completed today.
“We know him well as a goalkeeper,” Ross County boss Stuart Kettlewell told BBC Scotland last weekend. “We’ve seen what he’s done out on loan at Ayr. Ross has been top of the list for us for a period of time.”
Ross County boss Stuart Kettlewell has also confirmed he has finally been given the green light to complete the signing of Celtic goalkeeper Ross Doohan. “The agreement is there in principle. Ross is travelling up just now for a medical and I’d be pretty confident we’d have him on the training pitch tomorrow.
“It’s been a slight frustration as we’d liked to have got him in before and I’m sure Celtic will tell you they’d like to have had business done a couple of weeks earlier too.
“It’s just been one of those domino chains where we knew once Celtic got a new goalkeeper in, Ross would come up to us.
“We’ve been patient because it’s important we give ourselves good options in every area,” Kettlewell stated to the PA News Agency as reported by Evening Express.
