The Dutch defender signed a new one-year contract with the club on Sunday having spent the second half of last season at Hillsborough on a short-term deal. He left Real Zaragoza in the summer of 2013.

"It is fantastic news for us that Glenn has re-signed because he is a top player. He's a fantastic professional," Gray told the club's official website.

"He will be my captain and be an extension of my arm in the dressing room.

"He's a good organiser. He will soon catch up in pre-season. He's come back, looks lean and very, very fit.

"I want Glenn out there every week because of the qualities he can bring on the football pitch."

Former Cardiff and Celtic centre-half Loovens, who made 26 appearances for the Owls last season, said: "I will lead the guys out and give everything for the fans. I'm proud that Stuart Gray has given me the opportunity.

"As one of the older players in the team, it's my job to help the younger players coming through."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
