He may be sidelined for the season, but Greg Cunningham's keeping himself occupied as he battles back from his anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The Irishman, who has fitted straight in at Rovers after arriving on loan from Cardiff City in the summer, is keen to keep the spirits high after suffering his horror injury against Queens Park Rangers.

He's now off the crutches and available to do as he pleases, which has allowed the 28-year-old to learn some new tricks throughout his recuperation.

“I’ve started to read now and have got a couple of books," he revealed to iFollow Rovers when discussing his recovery.

"You hammer Netflix as much as you can and watch plenty of box sets, but I’ve started to read a little now, which is a good thing.

“I’m reading a book on geopolitics by Tim Marshall. I’ve read it before and I’m not into the non-fiction stuff, I prefer the more interesting books that you’ll learn things from.

“The ukulele was close to getting chucked against the wall a few times, but Catriona [fiancée] can play it. She’s the instructor at the moment and I’m learning off her.

“I have a bit of time on my hands now so it’s getting a bit of use, so it’s grand that it keeps the time ticking away.

“I’m working on I’m Yours by Jason Mraz at the minute. I’ve always wanted to learn an instrument to be honest, but although we get a bit of free time in football you’re always focussed on that and the time ticks away.

“I’ve got time to pick up something new now, so it’s given me the time to learn," he added.

“You have to look at other avenues when football is taken away from you, so the ukulele, books, football on the television, Netflix and Coronation Street on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays will be the things that keep my occupied!"
