Ross Cameron Stewart (born 11 July 1996) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a striker for League One club Sunderland.
Early Life and Career
Born in Irvine, Scotland.
Stewart started his career in the Scottish Juniors with Ardeer Thistle and Kilwinning Rangers, before making the step-up to senior football with Albion Rovers in July 2016. The part-time Coatbridge club were unable to pay the £1,500 transfer fee, with the funds instead provided by their supporters’ club members and by Stewart’s father.
After just one season with Albion Rovers, Stewart signed for Scottish Championship club St Mirren on a two-year full-time contract (a goalkeeper with the same name also joined at the time). Stewart scored on his debut for the Paisley club in a Scottish League Cup win versus Stranraer but failed to break into the first-team and was loaned out to Scottish League One club Alloa Athletic in December 2017, for the remainder of the season.
On 10 August 2018, Stewart signed for Ross County. He made his debut for the club in a 2–1 victory in the Scottish Challenge Cup against Heart of Midlothian Colts. Stewart scored his first goal for the club in the next round of the cup in a win against Montrose. He finished his first season at Ross County with 11 goals, three of them coming against County’s Rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle as Ross County were promoted to the Scottish Premiership.
On 31 January 2021 Stewart joined English side Sunderland for an undisclosed fee. Stewart scored on his Sunderland debut after coming on as a substitute against Accrington Stanley on 17 March 2021. During the 2021–22 EFL League One season Sunderland A.F.C. fans gave Ross Stewart the nickname of the “Loch Ness Drogba”, which relates to his Scottish heritage of Loch Ness, and retired Ivory Coast Striker Didier Drogba respectively. In an interview, Stewart was asked about the “Loch Ness Drogba” nickname, which he claimed he was aware of, whilst also expressing his validation for the name.
Ross Stewart is currently single and not in any relationship for now. Ross Stewart is also not yet married.
