Danny Andrew is looking forward to working with Darren Ferguson again after signing a two-year contract at Rovers.
The left-back’s move from Sky Bet League Two side Grimsby Town was completed on June 1, and he is relishing being reunited with the manager.
“As soon as the gaffer showed some interest that was it. I’ve a lot of respect for him and he gave me my first ever pro contract,” he said.
“But this season I am looking to play every game under him and get to know him even more.”
Andrew was a regular for Grimsby Town this season, making 50 senior appearances for the Mariners. It was not an easy decision for Andrew to leave Blundell Park, but he is relishing testing himself at the higher level.
“It was tough to leave Grimsby as we had a good season, but the fact I’m now in League One is massive for me. I want to push myself and have ambition to play as high as I can,” he added.
“I’ve not met anyone yet but know Matty Blair and Tommy Rowe from previous clubs, so I’m sure I’ll pick them out first in the dressing room. I’ve got every confidence in my ability. You’ve got someone who wants to win and will work hard every day for this club.”
Andrew is Rovers' second permanent signing of the summer, following Niall Mason's switch from Aston Villa.
