Glenn Whelan links up with Joey Barton at Bristol Rovers

“His experience will be a huge asset for us this season,” said Barton.

IRISH MIDFIELDER GLENN Whelan has joined League Two side Bristol Rovers on a one-year deal.

The move sees the 37-year-old reunite with manager Joey Barton, who he worked with at Fleetwood Town. Whelan has been without a club since he left Fleetwood at the end of last season.

“We are delighted to add Glenn to the group, his experience will be a huge asset for us this season,” said Barton.

“His arrival also gives us another option in the midfield area. He’s been training with us now for a few weeks, so is ready to get started and help us achieve our goals this season.”

Having been relegated from League One last season, the club have endured a disappointing start to their 2021/22 campaign, losing four of their opening five games.
