Grant McCann eyes up promotion after getting Doncaster job

By Carl Markham

Former Northern Ireland international Grant McCann is targeting promotion to the Championship after being appointed manager of Doncaster Rovers.

The 38-year-old Belfast man parted company with Peterborough in February, but he's now agreed to succeed Darren Ferguson, who left Rovers earlier this month after nearly three seasons at the Keepmoat Stadium.

"Doncaster are a club with real potential and ambition, and after meeting the chairman and chief executive I am confident we can work together to get the club into the Championship and stay there," said McCann.

"We have the makings of a successful season, with a good squad of players and backroom staff already in place to provide the foundations."

Rovers chairman David Blunt said: "He is one of the most promising young coaches in football, which was shown in his time at Peterborough."

Rovers finished 15th in League One last season.
