Biography...

A winger who is comfortable on either flank, Conway has made an immediate impression since arriving in January 2014.

Signed from Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee, the Scottish international put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Having started his footballing career at Ayr United, Conway moved to Dundee United in 2006, making 166 appearances during a five-year spell at Tannadice, scoring on 16 occasions.

Fine form for Dundee United saw him gain international honours for Scotland - to date Conway has seven caps to his name.

June 2011 saw the wideman make the move south to Cardiff City, playing a key role as the Bluebirds gained promotion to the Premier League in 2012-13. However a lack of first team opportunities saw him join Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion on loan for three months at the beginning of 2013-14.

Former manager Gary Bowyer moved to sign Conway at the end of the January 2014 transfer window and he would go on to be one of the standout performers in the second half of the campaign as Rovers just missed out on a top-six place. Last season the midfielder impressed once more, providing the service for the forwards on a regular basis.

The Scot has continued his fine form into the 2015-16 campaign, resulting in him putting pen-to-paper on a new two-and-a-half year deal to keep him at Rovers until the summer of 2018.
