Celtic Nation switch for Paterson

Bristol Rovers defender Jim Paterson is joining Northern League side Celtic Nation on loan.

The experienced defender will join the team, who are based in Carlisle, until the end of the season as he returns to full fitness after suffering a broken leg in the summer.

The 34-year-old left-back joined Rovers in 2011 and signed a new deal in 2013 after 29 appearances in all competitions last season.
