Rovers land winger Jordan Gibson

27 May 2024

We are delighted to confirm the signing of winger Jordan Gibson on a two-year contract with the option of an additional 12 months.

The 26-year-old spent the previous three years with Carlisle United, where he won promotion from Sky Bet League Two via the play-offs in 2023.

“It’s been in the works for a while,” Gibson said. “I’m really looking forward to getting started.

“I had positive chats with the manager and it’s a club with real potential with the project and the plans that he has got in place.

“The run the club went on towards the end of last season made everyone pay attention. It’s a good club with a good manager and I’m hoping we can do good things.”

Gibson came through the ranks at Scottish giants Rangers before joining Bradford City as a 19-year-old.

Following three years at Valley Parade, the Birmingham-born winger switched to the League of Ireland with St Patrick’s Athletic and subsequently Sligo Rovers.

He joined Carlisle in August 2021 and made more than 140 appearances for the Cumbrian side.

Rovers manager Grant McCann said: “I think he will excite the fans. He’s very direct, wants to get at people, can score, can set goals up.

“He’s got a swagger about him, which I like and an air of confidence. I think he’s a very good signing for us.”

Gibson becomes the second new signing of the summer following the arrival of Joe Sbarra.
