Born at Oran in Algeria, Ronan Soisson made his footballing debut with AS Brestoise in the youth teams. In 1978, aged 19, he was recruited by Stade Rennais where he would never succeed in making the breakthrough during his lone season in Red and Black. Indeed, he only made three appearances, of which just one came as part of the starting line-up. In his first match as a professional footballer, this defender, mainly used as centre-back, came on as a substitute for Thoirain on matchday 15 in the Second Division against Tours on 3rd March 1979. His second appearance in a Rennes shirt came against Boulogne-sur-Mer (0-1) on 12th May 1979, coming on for Goby. His lone start came on the final day of the season, on 26th May 1979, in a victory over Châteauroux (2-0). After this far-from-prolific season, he brought his professional playing days to a close. Subsequently, he was hired by Guingamp, where he coached the youth teams in the Noughties.
