Andy Butler says he has not stopped smiling since agreeing to rejoin Rovers on a deal until January 2021.

The experienced defender returned to the club on Friday, and says he had been keen to put pen to paper since talks began. 

He said: “I’m delighted to be back, I haven’t smiled this much for a long time and I feel like I’m coming home. 

“It’s a massive boost for myself to get the deal done before the season starts, I’ve not stopped smiling since it’s been agreed. 

“I live five minutes from the ground so it’s a move that is good for me, I was running at Cantley Park during lockdown so I’ve never been far away.” 

Butler’s arrival further strengthens Darren Moore’s defensive options, and the centre-back wants to encourage those around him to become better players. 

He added: “Hopefully the club can see how I can make an impact on the dressing room, I want to push the other lads as much as I can and improve them as well as myself. 

“The past few months have been tough for everyone, I know I’m not a spring chicken but I’ve kept myself fit ready for this. 

“If people think age is going to hold me back then it’s not, I feel fitter than I have done for a long time.”
