Bohemians unveil return of Ross Tierney

Bohemians have confirmed the return of midfielder Ross Tierney on a multi-year contract.

Tierney, 23, rejoins the Gypsies after leaving the club for Motherwell at the end of the 2021 season.

While at Fir Park, Tierney also spent a season on loan at Walsall in England’s League Two last term. 

He is also a former Ireland under-21 international but returns to Dalymount Park with 12 months remaining on his current deal with Motherwell. 

“I see getting Ross back to the club as a coup, and a reflection of the ambition we have to get Bohs back to where we belong. He is the calibre of talent I want to bring to this club,” Bohs boss Alan Reynolds said.

“He has turned down bigger offers from other clubs to come back to the club that he loves, and there has been a huge amount of work in the background to get this over the line.

“Bohs means an awful lot to Ross, and it is clear that he wants to come back and be part of something new and exciting here.

“He is a player with passion, an eye for goal, and real quality in the final third. He also has the work ethic that I want to see from players.

“He has a great profile, and has already been a great player for Bohs, but what is most exciting for me is that I feel that the best is yet to come for Ross.

“He is a great guy, on and off the pitch, and I believe our fans will take to him again like they did here before.”

Tierney said: “I am buzzing to be back. I am not just coming back to be happy being home – I am coming back to help Bohs push on, get back to where we belong, challenging for trophies and getting back into Europe.”
