Corry Evans says he's excited for the future at Rovers after putting pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract at the club.

Evans follows on from the boss, skipper Charlie Mulgrew and Elliott Bennett in showing total commitment to the club, and will remain a Rover until the summer of 2021.
 
The Northern Ireland international, who has 52 caps to his name, joined Rovers from Hull City in the summer of 2013 and has appeared 168 times for the club since.
 
And speaking to iFollow Rovers after extending his stay, Evans says it was an easy decision to remain in East Lancashire.
 
“I’m delighted to sign," the midfielder said.
 
"It’s been in the pipeline for a couple of months and I’m delighted to commit my future to the club. It was a no-brainer to sign on the dotted line.
 
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here so I’m really happy to sign and continue my association with the club.
 
“There’s been lots of highs and lows, but I think we’re on the rise now, especially with the manager committing his future to the club as well for the next few years.
 
“Since the manager has come in I think the club has gone on a step and we’ve improved. He’s improved the team in every transfer window.
 
“I’m excited for the next few years to see how this team can progress and grow. That will all come down to the manager and the backroom staff."
