Shout out to John Brogan, without him none of this would have happened. There would have been no Kevin Harper or the tremendous fight back in the second half of the season.

Rovers got out of jail absolutely no doubt. The appointment of Brogan just about killed the club I don't blame him but the Directors who made the appointment. The 3 points from the Clyde game helped give us impetus, the untimely death of our goalie coach Michael Dukes gave the players inspiration ( which is a huge misfortune to Michael's family) also Kevein Harper and Joe McLaughlin and the players worked a miracle aided by Berwick's capitulation all played a part.

Well done rovers. Have to admit I thought you were a dead cert for the pyramid playoffs but the late rally and determination shown to dig out results has been admirable

Meant to post on this earlier...really delighted Rovers survived and hopefully under the decent young manager you found you'll be solidly mid table next season.

Will try and get along to a game at Cliftonhill when I find myself in the Glasgow area next term.

Cliftonhill maybe a shitehole, but it's a proper shitehole, if that makes sense. Only been once last season (Raith fan, you beat us 2-1) but I enjoyed the character of the place, and the pies were good.

Some memories of Cliftonhill tbf.
From a 9 year old acting as a ball boy at the Airdrie reserve games on wet Tuesday nights 25 years ago, to an absolute mauling at the hands of a John Gemmell (sp?) Inspired rovers not so long ago.
I'm really glad they've stayed up, and a big chance to ensure they learn from the mistakes of last summer.

It quite literally is a shitehole. The amount of pigeon dropping's seriously tests my resolve every time I go there. Thankfully the pies outweigh the negatives by some measure.  And thankfully I'll be back next season :thumsup2

Shameless hunt for greenies.

Delighted to see you guys stay up. Hope you can kick on from here and have a bit more of a fighting chance next season.

Think rovers priority should be to get Osadolor and Morena signed up, seemed to turn things around when they came to the club. 2 good players for league 2 who I doubt will have many options

Bang on the money here. The two best signings by Harper.
