Ryan, who is still only 24, is the youngest known Jag to appear in a matchday squad having sat on the bench for a fixture against Ross County in November 2008 at the age of just 16. He continued his progression into the first team squad and made his long awaited debut on the final day of the 2010/11 season, keeping a clean sheet in the process.
Ryan needed games to continue his footballing development and spent two seasons on loan at League One Dunfermline Athletic, where his performances won him a number of awards from Pars fans.
Having returned to Firhill for the start of the 2015/16 campaign, Ryan was kept out of the team by Tomas Cerny but, after the Czech picked up a couple of injuries, Ryan was given the opportunity to show what he could do at the highest level for the club. He produced his best form in a Jags jersey during the 2016/17 campaign before injury forced him onto the sidelines for the second half of the year.
Contract Expires: May 2018
