Johnstone spent time on loan at the Keepmoat Stadium having previously played for the likes of Scunthorpe United and Yeovil Town, but was briefly spoken of as a possibility to step up as the club’s main back-up goalkeeper if Anders Lindegaard departed the club, but the Dane remains at Old Trafford as cover for first choice David de Gea.

Doncaster are marooned in mid-table after their relegation to League One, with manager Paul Dickov not yet able to sustain a challenge for promotion back to the Championship this season despite Rovers being one of the pre-season favourites.
