Done deal: Defender signs after Celtic settle terms
By Will Butcher
Rotherham boss Alan Stubbs has signed a second player from Celtic after completing a deal for English defender Darnell Fisher, it was announced on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old has signed for the Millers after he spent last season on-loan at St. Johnstone and joins midfielder Scott Allan in making a move to the Yorkshire outfit.
Rotherham’s official website broke the news that Fisher had signed, with the Hoops graduate signing a three-year deal at the New York Stadium.

Former Everton stalwart Stubbs has been looking to the Scottish Premier League for summer recruits, after moving from Hibernian to Rotherham himself in June.
The Daily Record claimed yesterday, via their transfer news blog (10.32am), that Fisher could become Stubbs’ third signing from his home nation, after also signing Will Vaulks from Falkirk.

The 22-year-old had fallen down the pecking order at Celtic Park behind the likes of Saidy Janko and Mikael Lustig, and was desperate to move to gain first-team football and it looks like he has achieved that move.
The Hoops graduate, who wears the number 41 shirt, spent last season on loan at St. Johnstone, and made 23 appearances in all competitions for the top-tier side as they finished above expectations in fourth position.
Fisher, who has a Scottish Premier League medal from Celtic’s 2013-14 triumph, has made 21 appearances in a green and white shirt following his debut against Hibernian in 2013.
In other Celtic transfer news, the Hoops have confirmed a second winger bid after this 25-year-old put pen to paper.
