Remarkably, the loan arrival of Celtic stopper Doohan means County now have three goalkeepers on their books, and ALL of them are named Ross.
Doohan joins fellow goalkeepers Ross Laidlaw and Ross Munro in the Scottish side’s lineup, meaning County’s defenders won’t have to learn a new name if the Celtic man ends up taking the starting goalkeeper position.
Having three goalkeepers called Ross would be remarkable enough, but Ross County also have two more players called Ross in their squad, with midfielder Ross Draper and striker Ross Stewart also an integral part of their team.
This past weekend, County produced a perfect storm of nominative determinism, as ESPN journalist Dale Johnson tweeted at the time.
“Ross County. Ross have signed goalkeeper Ross Doohan on loan from Celtic,” he began.
“Ross Doohan was on the bench tonight vs. Motherwell. Ross Laidlaw started with Ross’ other keeper, Ross Munro, missing out.
“Ross’ winning goal was scored by Ross Stewart, while Ross Draper came on.”
