He could be a good signing if his back holds out. I hope that he comes in and takes control of the defence.

Thats his problem, been dogged by injuries most of his career or he could have played at the really highest level.

my god what a signing...carn't believe you have pulled this off. best defender we have had in years we gave him away at 2m...should have been more like 6m but typical blades syndrome again giving players away on the cheap!!!....why the hell we didnt go in for him i'll never know....we are desperate at the back.

I believe Sheff Utd did but he chose Rovers ahead of a number of clubs.

What a coup this is to get him for the rest of the season. We have been crying out for a centre back of his quality all season.

A brilliant signing, Rovers have had no problem scoring this season so if they can start keeping clean sheets with a good defence then the play offs beckon.
