Darren Ferguson has thanked fans of Rovers, and football in general, for their support following the illness of his father.
Rovers manager Darren missed the final game of the Sky Bet League One season to be with his father who had suffered a brain haemorrhage, and has been touched by the well wishes received by the family.
He said: “On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank the huge number of people who have been kind enough to send messages of support during a difficult time.
“It has been overwhelming to read how many people care and that they are thinking of my dad and willing his recovery.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Macclesfield Hospital and at the Salford Royal who have been truly magnificent. We continue to request privacy during this vital period of recovery.”
