Brown delighted with capture of 'winner' Rooney

25 May 2022

Scott Brown has hailed new Fleetwood Town signing Shaun Rooney as a ‘real winner’.

The 25-year-old became Town’s Head Coach’s first signing after he agreed a deal to join the Cod Army following the expiration of his contract with St Johnstone at the end of the month. 
Rooney, 25, played a huge part of Saints’ survival in the Scottish Premiership last season, playing 32 times and scoring in Monday night’s play-off final.
And after beating off a host of clubs for the defender’s signature, boss Brown said:
“As a player and as a manager I know Shaun really well and know what he can bring to Fleetwood Town,” he explained. 
“I’ve played against him many times and know he’s a real winner who has determination and will put his body on the line for the team.
“He will bring us a lot of quality defensively and going forward as well. Shaun can play in a few different positions and he’s a great addition to the squad.
“From my point of view to have my first signing a player who I know so well is a big plus for me.
“I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
