WATCH | McCann discusses Owen Bailey's arrival

13 June 2023

Owen Bailey may bring versatility to Rovers’ ranks but Grant McCann has one role in mind for the 24-year-old.

Bailey - the seventh signing of the summer after agreeing a two-year deal with the club - has operated in both midfield and defence during his career.

But McCann signed the former Newcastle United youngster for a defensive midfield role.

“I think the midfield players in our team are always flexible in terms of their movement and rotations and we want people that are comfortable in playing in all three positions,” McCann said. “And Owen is that.

“He can play as a number six, he can play higher up, he has played right back and right centre half. There’s positions he can fill. But predominantly we’re bringing him in to compete with the rest of the midfielders we’ve got.”
