Brian Flynn: Two-week extension

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.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
