Brian Flynn has been handed a two week contract extension by Rovers as doubts remain over his future with the new League One champions.

Rovers’ major shareholders will take part in a major meeting today following the club’s promotion to the Championship.

And the manager’s position will be high on the agenda.

The Welshman’s temporary deal as Rovers boss expired at the end of the season.

There has been no strong suggestion from the club that the 57-year-old will be rewarded with a longer term deal after guiding Rovers over the promotion finishing line.

Chairman John Ryan yesterday handed Flynn a short stay of execution.

But he said Flynn’s future will not be the only item on the agenda at today’s meeting, with other out-of-contract individuals also up for discussion.

“We’ve extended Brian’s contract by a couple of weeks so he’s still getting paid,” Ryan said.

“I’m going to sit down with the major shareholders on Tuesday and discuss a lot of peoples’ futures.”

“It isn’t just Brian, there are a lot of other people out of contract too.”

Ryan is keen to see the majority of Rovers’ promotion winning squad get a chance to prove themselves in the Championship next season.

But he also confirmed a list of potential transfer targets have also been drawn up.

He said: “We’ve already identified quite a few targets.

“I’d like to see three or four quality players come in and for the vast majority of players we already have to be given their chance.”
