That's a brilliant signing. And not even with the usual "for League One" caveat. Played for Scotland nine months ago! 

When I saw he was leaving Hibs I wondered if the Rovers might be in for him, but I thought he'd be more likely to appear at a bottom six Premiership side. 

You've had a few over lunchtime?

If one of the others is Sean Mackie, I don't think you'll be over- or under-whelmed. A very whelming signing. He came in to the Rovers last season with a simple remit; be better than Liam Dick. And, eh, he wasn't really. He looked like a poor-to-average Championship left back. But I don't think he'd played much football for about a year prior. With a full pre-season he should be fine, I can't see him being one of your disastrous Falkirk signings. 

You've got the wrong McGinn.

#3 is Gary Oliver. Looking forward to us signing a goalscorer then.

If I’m correctly interpreting MCGlynn comments, I wouldn’t bet that there’s  maybe at least one/two forwards to come in.

John McGlynn said on signing Gary:

“Gary is a striker who can also play behind a striker or coming in off a side. He’s gained a lot of experience mainly playing in the Championship, and we feel Gary will complement the way we want to play. He’s an intelligent attacking player who can link the play in and around the box, he knows the route to goal, he knows the runs to make, and he’s coachable and willing to learn. At 26 years old we believe he’s ready to play a big part next season and beyond.”

Has there been a bigger upgrade in the history of football than going from Steven Hetherington to Stephen McGinn?
Maybe not but I'd need to see Nesbitt > Sibbald just to be sure

Liked the bit about being ‘coachable and willing to learn’
