Carrick Rangers strike to sign international midfielder axed by Larne

Carrick Rangers have signed midfielder Ralph Kottoy, who had his Larne contract terminated earlier this week.

Kottoy, along with David Abe and Julien Anau, was let go by the East Antrim club, who cited "a serious breach of club discipline."

Now Carrick Rangers have brought in the 25-year-old who featured in a friendly for the Central African Republic against Algeria back in November.

Carrick boss David McAlinden said he was 'delighted' to add the player to his panel as the club try to stave off relegation from the Danske Bank Premiership.

“Ralph is an energetic player who our scouts have been very impressed with, so when the opportunity arose to sign him we moved very swiftly," the former Larne manager said. "He will add more quality going forward and has an eye for goal as well, and it’s important that we’re adding players that will bring something different to what we already have and Ralph will do that, so we’re delighted to get him on board.”

Carrick are currently second bottom in the table and have also added defender Damien McNulty, striker Brendan Glackin and Crusaders' Ryan Nimick (loan) to their squad this month.
