Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott ends his interest in signing former Celtic goalkeeper Robbie Thomson.

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott has revealed that the club are no longer interested in signing former Celtic goalkeeper Robbie Thomson.

The 20-year-old had been on trial at Brunton Park after being released by the Scottish champions at the end of last season.

"We're not going to take Robbie Thomson," Abbott told Carlisle's official website. "He's got other options at the moment and he will go off to pursue those.

"We looked at him as a possible permanent signing, but we weren't sure about him challenging [first-choice keeper] Mark Gillespie.

"We'll keep looking for another goalkeeper, but it will probably be a loan deal if we can make that happen."

Gillespie, who made 37 appearances last season, became Carlisle's first-choice stopper in September 2012, dislodging Adam Collin, who joined Rotherham United in May.
