Flynn took over as caretaker manager at the beginning of January following Dean Saunders' departure to Wolves and was later handed a deal until the end of the season.

The former Wales Under-21 boss led Rovers to the League One title with a dramatic 1-0 win at Brentford on Saturday.

However, it remains to be seen whether the 57-year-old will be the man in charge when the south Yorkshire club kick-off their Championship campaign in August.

"We've extended Brian's contract by a couple of weeks so he's still getting paid," Doncaster chairman John Ryan told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I'm going to sit down with the major shareholders on Tuesday and discuss a lot of peoples' futures.

"It isn't just Brian, there are a lot of other people out of contract too."

Doncaster sealed an immediate return to the Championship thanks to James Coppinger's injury-time winner against Brentford, who seconds before had missed a penalty that would have sent them up at Rovers' expense.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
