Aberdeen have continued their revamp of the squad at Pittodrie with the signing of Ross Doohan from Forest Green Rovers.

Doohan has become Barry Robson’s sixth signing of the summer, signing a two-year deal with the Dons.

The 25-year-old spent six months in England’s League Two, having moved from Tranmere Rovers in January of this year.

A former Scotland under-21 keeper, with 13 caps at that level, Doohan began his career at Celtic and had loan spells at Morton, Ayr United, Ross County and Dundee United.

The goalkeeper said he had no hesitation in agreeing the move to Pittodrie as soon as he knew of Aberdeen’s bid to sign him.

“I’m very happy to be here,” Doohan told the club website. “As soon as I heard of the interest, I was keen to get it agreed quickly.

“When I spoke to the manager and Craig Samson, they both re-emphasised everything I knew about how big a club Aberdeen is. I know it’s going to be a massive season with European matches to look forward to and it was just an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“Being here at such a big club is only going to benefit me in the long term in terms of my development so I am just eager to get started and play a part in helping to deliver success for Aberdeen.”

The Aberdeen boss said he was happy to be adding more quality to the group of players he has at his disposal, as he looks to build on last season’s third-placed finish.

“Despite his age, Ross has gained a lot of experience, at various levels both here in Scotland and in England,” he said.

“He is composed and decisive and we look forward to helping Ross continue his professional development.

“We’ve got a significant number of fixtures to play this season so I am sure Ross will be an important asset for us and will be an excellent addition to the fantastic group of goalkeepers we have here at Aberdeen.”
