Tony Mowbray believes Paul Caddis’ attacking instincts will be a major asset to Rovers this season.
The new signing, who has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the club following a successful trial, showcased his attacking talents when he bagged a brace in Tuesday’s 8-0 victory over York City.
A right-back by trade, Caddis has displayed his desire to get further forward throughout his career and Mowbray believes his footballing brain was a key factor in bringing him to the club.
The Rovers manager said: “I think he’s just an experienced footballer who understands and knows where to go, when to run forward, when to stand still, when to pass it, when to travel with the ball.
“I think he’s got a good understanding of football.
“A very important quality, which he brought the other night, is knowing when to get in the box, knowing when to cut inside.
“He’s just a good footballer.
“I’m delighted that he’s here and I think he will continue to get fitter and stronger as he continues to work every day and I’m just pleased to have added him to the squad.”
