Ross County are sitting in a. comfortable 4th in the Scottish Premiership after a victory over Motherwall.
But fans couldn’t help share a laugh when all three of the squad’s goalkeepers shared the club’s name.
This is because Scottish U21 keeper Ross Doohan signed to join Ross Laidlaw and Ross Munro at Ross County.
“We know him well as a goalkeeper,” coach Kettlewell told the BBC.
“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. It’s kind of been pending for three or four weeks, but it looks like it’s going to get done.
“We feel he’ll be a really good addition to the group and we’re really looking forward to getting him in.”
Fans had a laugh after the coach announced the signing of Ross.
