Celtic have loaned out goalkeeper Ross Doohan once again.

Ayr United have re-signed Ross Doohan from Celtic on a season-long loan - and the fans are delighted.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper impressed for the Somerset Park club last season in the Championship, making 47 appearances in all competitions.

And Celtic have confirmed that they have farmed out the young Scottish keeper once again.

Doohan established himself as a firm fan favourite last year and turned in a very impressive 20 clean sheets, coming close to breaking the club's all-time record.

 

And suffice to say that United supporters are over the moon with regards to re-signing the Hoops prospect.

Doohan might feel a tad disappointed to be leaving Celtic again.

He might well have had an eye on staying with Neil Lennon's senior squad. After all, Dorus De Vries's retirement means that Lennon needs a third-choice keeper to challenge Scott Bain and Craig Gordon.

That being said, Doohan is only 21 which, for a goalkeeper, is extremely young. He'll have further opportunities to make it at Parkhead.
