'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rovers loan out Goodwillie

David Goodwillie has completed a loan move back to his old club Dundee United.

Goodwillie has struggled to breakthrough into the Rovers first team and has struggled for fitness and form since being signed for just over 2m back in the summer of 2011.

A decision has been reached by Rovers manager Gary Bowyer to loan him back out to get some games under his belt with the new season now just a month away. But the gaffer has insisted that he isn't being thrown out in the cold and discarded.

"We are not pushing David out of the door,' Bowyer told the Rovers official website.

"In the two years he has been at the club, he has not played as many games as he would have liked and this move presents him with the chance to play some regular football.

"It is an opportunity for him to go back home and play for the club he joined us from and where he made a name for himself.

"He will have family and friends around him and we expect him to find his feet very quickly. We look forward to welcoming him back in January once he has got some games - and hopefully some goals - under his belt.'

New Wayne Rooney? Really Steven?

Feel for Goodie, always wanted him to be given an extended run, tough as a bit part player
