Moore, who played for Donny in his playing days from 1995 to 1997, was harshly sacked by West Brom in March despite the club being fourth in the Championship.

He has now got back into the dugout and will be aiming to get Doncaster promoted to the second tier.

He has told their official club website: “When the job became available I read up on all areas of the club and the thing that stood out for me was amount of work going on around the place.
“There are a lot of things being done around the community as well as the connection with the rugby club, there is a real togetherness. That made it a job opportunity that I wanted to apply for, I have a passion and a desire to manage at this wonderful football club.”

He added: “It’s been great to see how Rovers have progressed both on and off the pitch over the years since I left. As a player and a manager I have always been about looking to the future, now my focus is on this next chapter.”
“I can’t wait to meet the players and the staff, along with everyone connected at the training ground and the stadium itself.”

Here are five players Moore could target for Doncaster, as suggested by The72.
