Scott Robertson became Rovers fourth signing of the week and sixth signing of the January transfer window when his arrival from Celtic on loan was confirmed on Saturday morning.
The 19-year-old midfielder was the only one of Darren Moore’s four signings that week who was included in the squad against Lincoln City with Josh Sims recovering from injury, John Bostock still building up fitness and Omar Bogle self-isolating.
“Scott has been playing so he was ready to go,” Moore said.
“We needed a bit depth in midfield and his arrival gives us different options in there. We’ve got variety now so we can chop it up and change which is what you want in there.
“I tried to get Scott at the start of the season and just missed out so I’m pleased to get him now.
“He’s someone that moves well with the ball and has wonderful technical ability. He fits what we’re trying to do and we’re thankful to Celtic for trusting him with us. We’ll get him integrated with the squad and he’ll be ready to perform when called upon.”
Omar Bogle joined Rovers on a permanent basis on Friday but received a positive COVID-19 result before joining up with the squad. He has been self-isolating but Moore says the striker can’t wait to get going.
“When his positive COVID result came back, he was gutted,” he added.
“Omar will bring great experience and he’ll ruffle defenders. He’s got an eye for goal and he’s a welcome addition to the football club.
“I’m pleased to have him on board and I can’t wait to work with him because there are areas of his game that we believe we can improve. Hopefully, when he gets back in he’ll bring a wonderful presence and a threat for us.”
