Flynn: Tasked with Rovers job

Former Wales Under-21 boss Flynn has been in temporary charge along with captain Rob Jones since Dean Saunders left the club 10 days ago to take over at Wolves.

The pair guided Doncaster to a 2-1 win at Stevenage last weekend to keep Rovers joint-top of League One.

The South Yorkshire club have decided to keep the current management team in place to ensure a "seamless transition" as they chase promotion during the second half of the season.

"We are pleased to announce that Brian and Rob have taken up our offer to manage the team and are now fully focussed on the game against Leyton Orient on Saturday," said Doncaster chairman John Ryan.

"Brian has a great history at the club and is being assisted by our current captain Rob Jones, who has earned the respect of his team-mates and fans this season through his commanding leadership.

"We had an overwhelming number of applications for the position, including former international and Premiership managers. However, after a detailed process we felt that our initial choice - Brian - was the best person to put in charge and would allow a seamless transition."

Flynn, 57, spent eight years in charge of Wales' youth teams before joining Doncaster as a scout in August.

The former Wrexham boss has been out of club management since leaving Swansea in 2004.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
