Shamrock Rovers have announced a new signing of sorts with the return of goalkeeper Alan Mannus in four weeks time.

The Northern Ireland international will see out the Scottish Premiership season with St Johnstone before he returns to Tallaght Stadium on July 1 when the Summer transfer window opens.

"We have been aware that Alan was considering his future for quite a while now," said Hoops head coach Stephen Bradley.

"I would like to thank our Sporting Director Stephen McPhail and the Board of Shamrock Rovers for the work and effort made over the past few months in securing Alan’s signature.

"Alan is a huge addition to the squad and his signing further illustrates the work going on behind the scenes to ensure that we continue to build as a squad."

Mannus signed for Rovers in August, 2009 and went on to win two league titles under Michael O'Neill in 2010 and 2011 while he was also voted the 2010 SWAI Goalkeeper of the Year.

He teamed up with O'Neill as part of the Northern Ireland squad that played at Euro 2016.
