Scunthorpe player-coach Andy Dawson is hoping to pass on his experience to the Glamford Park youngsters as the Iron prepare for life in League Two.

Left-back Dawson, 34, was persuaded by Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws to return to the club after a decade at Hull. He considered taking up a coaching role with the Tigers, but opted to come back to the Iron.

Dawson told Scunthorpe's official website: "I know the manager really well. It is a good opportunity

"It is part of a learning curve for me and I want to progress as a coach.

"There are a lot of young lads and they have a very good attitude and they always want to learn and that is all I have ever done as a player."

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.
