Doncaster Rovers have signed Scottish defender Gary MacKenzie on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old centre back becomes Rovers’ third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann and striker Andy Williams.

MacKenzie, who stands 6’3” tall, was released by Blackpool following their relegation from the Championship.

He made 12 appearances on loan for Bradford City last season after a problematic time with injuries.

MacKenzie spent time with Rangers and Dundee before a move south of the border in 2010 when he joined MK Dons.

Boss Paul Dickov said: “Gary is a great signing for us, he is a quality defender with a footballing brain.

“He is a hard as nails centre half who comes highly recommended and a man who will run through brick walls for me, his teammates and for the fans.”
