The End of Year Waivers draft took place today and Minnesota United has selected former Orlando City keeper Gregory Ranjitsingh in the draft. This selection does not guarantee that he will be signed to a contract but gives MNUFC his MLS rights and ability to negotiate a contract with him.
The Canadian born Ranjitsingh played four years of collegiate soccer at Mercer University in Macon, GA from 2011-14. In his four seasons with the Bears, Ranjitsingh started 81 games playing a total of 7,525 minutes and tallying 27 shutouts.
He would turn professional in 2015 signing with the USL (now USL Championship) side Louisville City FC ahead of their inaugural season. From 2015-18 he played for Louisville City recording 39 clean sheets in 90 appearances totaling 7,896 minutes.
Prior to 2019 he would leave Louisville City and sign for Orlando City SC. His primary role was a backup goalkeeper as he made the matchday squad 21 times but only made two appearances for the Lions. His first appearance saw OCSC lose 2-1 to Seattle Sounders in May and while his second start in July saw his club draw 1-1 to Portland Timbers.
