Grant McCann has secured his number one striker target for Rovers with the signing of Joe Ironside.
The 29-year-old has agreed a three-year contract at the Eco-Power Stadium to bolster McCann’s attacking ranks.
And the Rovers boss says Ironside was always top of his list when examining options for a striker.
“Joe has been our number one target from day one,” McCann said. “We’re really pleased he’s decided to join us after having lots of interest from both League One and League Two.”
McCann believes Ironside will bring versatility Rovers need to take on all the challenges Sky Bet League Two will throw out next season.
He said: “His press is great, he’s aggressive, he has good movement in and around the box, and he loves to be on the end of crosses and through balls.
“His link up play is a big part of his game and it’s something we’ll need to be able to play over and through teams when being pressed.”
