David Cotterill is unsure about his future at Doncaster Rovers.

The Welsh winger - who is out of contract this summer - spoke out on twitter earlier this week about his personal problems that overshadowed Rovers’ relegation from the Championship.

Father-of-two Cotterill, 26, publicly thanked boss Paul Dickov, teammates and fans for their support while he has been going through a divorce.

He labelled the last four months as ‘the worst period of my life’.

Cotterill tweeted: “A lot of people [are] asking about my future regarding [Doncaster Rovers]. I don’t know what is happening yet.

“All I want to say is thank you to everyone at the club.

“The last four months I’ve been going through a divorce and the manager and my teammates have helped me get through the worst period of my life.

“Not being able to see my kids has been the biggest challenge of all. So fans, the management, staff and teammates, thank you.”

After initially struggling to hold down a regular starting spot under Dickov, Cotterill’s form picked up towards the the end of the season as he became a regular fixture out wide.

He is one of eight players currently mulling over a new contract offer from Rovers, along with Ross Turnbull, James Coppinger, Paul Keegan, Liam Wakefield, Harry Middleton, Alex Peterson and Jon Maxted.

With his terms likely to have been reduced, Cotterill will assess his options this summer before committing himself to Doncaster.
