FORMER Wanderers loanee Calvin Ramsay will be lining up in the colours of Wigan Athletic next season.

The Liverpool full-back failed to make a dent in his short spell with Bolton, making just two starts in four months at the Toughsheet Stadium.

He had spent the first half of last season on loan in the Championship with Preston North End but experienced injury issues and was similarly limited in his impact.

Ramsay was signed for £6m from Aberdeen by the Premier League Reds and quickly made his way into the full Scotland squad but his lack of game time means he was not in the squad for this summer’s Euros.

He is now looking to get his career back on track with the Latics.

“I am over the moon. It happened quickly and I met the manager (Shaun Maloney) two weeks ago,” he told the club.

“I had a really good conversation, and there was an instant connection. I’m excited for the start of the season.

“When I was driving to the training ground, there was a real excitement, and I am hungry to get going and show everyone what I can do.

“It’s a good opportunity at a good club, and I am raring to go.”

Ramsay’s contract at Liverpool runs until 2026 but with Conor Bradley furthering his reputation last season at Anfield he was shifted further down the first team pecking order.

Wigan boss Maloney feels he can make a difference to his side in League One.

“I am delighted that Calvin has joined us on a season-long loan. He is a very highly regarded player, who has already represented his country and gained experience in both the Scottish Premiership and the EFL,” he said.

“Calvin is an excellent profile who will bring aggression and attacking talent from both the right and left side of defence.

"Calvin is extremely motivated to help our team achieve success this season and will join us on day one of pre-season. I look forward to working with Calvin and helping him adapt as quickly as possible.”
