CELTIC rookie keeper Ross Doohan has agreed an emergency loan move to Dundee United.

The 23-year-old Hoops prospect joined the Tannadice club after regular No.1 Benjamin Siegrist was ruled out for the remained of the season with a fractured wrist, according to a report in the Daily Record.

Doohan has been pitched into the squad for this afternoon’s Scottish Cup quarter-final against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

It will be a choice between the young Hoops star and Deniz Mehmet to see who starts against Stephen Glass’ side who needed penalty-kicks to get past Livingston in the previous round.

He was at Ayr United in seasons 2018/20 and made 80 appearances for the Somerset Park team before joining Ross County this season where he had five outings before returning to the Hoops.

United were forced into making a late move for Doohan after their back-up netminder Jack Newman was also ruled out for the campaign with a knee injury.
