The 27-year-old has been without a club following his release by Brighton at the end the 2012/13 campaign.

The Irishman says he is looking forward to playing under Dale boss Keith Hill.

He told the club's official website: "The move came about pretty quickly and I'm looking forward to getting back out on the pitch.

"Because you haven't signed for a club straight away people think you are holding out for this or that but it wasn't the case. I spoke to a few clubs but for whatever reason things didn't work out.

"I spoke to Keith Hill and thought about the move for a bit. I spoke to a few players who have played under him and they all think highly of him so I think it'll be a good move for both of us.

"I have good memories playing against Rochdale and they have always put up a good show against the teams I have played in. There was Wembley and two great games when I played for Brighton, we drew two apiece so I know what Rochdale is all about.

"I'm looking forward to working with the gaffer too, I know him from his time at Rochdale and at Barnsley and you pick it up as a player how certain teams play. Keith Hill's sides play good attractive football and that will suit me."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
