Darnell Fisher joins Rotherham on three-year deal from Celtic

Rotherham have moved to strengthen their leaky defence with the capture of Darnell Fisher on a three-year deal.

The 22-year-old right-back, who can also play on the left, has joined from Celtic for an undisclosed fee, becoming the eighth summer signing and the fourth that the Millers have paid cash for.

Fisher was in the stands for Tuesday’s shambolic EFL Cup defeat to Morecambe and will fancy his chances of breaking straight into the backline.

The Englishman has played 21 times for the Old Firm giants but spent last season on loan at St Johnstone.

Boss Alan Stubbs said: “He is very athletic, he will provide competition for places, he is a modern day full-back, he is very quick.

“He will get up the pitch, he has played at Celtic and it is a huge club and we have given him an opportunity to come here and fight for a place and push Kells (Stephen Kelly).

“He has played left-back, he’s normally a right-back.”
