Alloa manager Jack Ross delighted with Michael Doyle re-signing – even if it’s only for another fortnight



Alloa manager Jack Ross admits he is delighted to have re-signed defender Michael Doyle, even though the deal only lasts until the end of the month.

The former Kilmarnock player looked to have played his last game for the Wasps at the start of January after initially departing the club in the hope of landing a full-time team.

But with no offers forthcoming as yet, the 24-year-old, who played in Tuesday’s win at Raith Rovers, has rejoined Ross’ side in a bid to put himself in the shop window during the next fortnight.

Doyle joined the Wasps from Killie in 2011


Ross said: “Michael’s still got an ambition to go and play full-time. If that opportunity comes up for him then we won’t stand in his way.

“But if he continues to be available for us then brilliant.

“He’s signed until the end of the month and then we’ll look at how things are then from both sides.

“It’s a little bit of a gamble from our respect because a move could happen for him at any time, and he was terrific against Raith on Tuesday night.

“But what he’s done at this club, long before I was here, means people have a lot of respect for him, and he’s been great for me.

“So, we’ve got an understanding that if that happens for him then great.

“If it doesn’t then I’ll be delighted, for selfish reasons.”
