Excited by the manager’s plans

24 June 2016

Danny Graham is looking forward to working with new Rovers boss Owen Coyle.

The fans favourite said he has had plenty of positive talks with the manager over the past couple of weeks and was buoyed by what he had to say.

“What hasn’t he had to say to me!” joked Graham. “We've had several conversations about how he wants to play and the style of football he wants to play and what players he wants to bring in and stuff like that and it's something I want to be a part of and I'm very much looking forward to working with him. 

“Obviously I knew the club a lot from my time here, but to come in and see what sort of ideas he had, it's always going to be different to what other managers have, but I was really impressed with what had to say.

“He's come in and mentioned that he doesn't want to be where we finished last season. We've said it before, it was below par. We shouldn't have been where we were, but that's up to us to make it right and hopefully be more consistent and look up the table instead of looking over our shoulders.”

Graham became Coyle’s third summer signing, following the arrivals of former Celtic striker Anthony Stokes and West Ham full-back Stephen Hendrie, and is encouraged by how the squad is taking shape.

“I think the gaffer’s done some good business so far and I'm sure there's more to come,” he added.

“So, if he can get a couple more in of that sort of standard, I think we'll definitely be looking up the table.”
