Gary MacKenzie believes that Doncaster Rovers can achieve something special this season, after penning a two-year deal at the Keepmoat Stadium.MacKenzie joins the Sky Bet League 1 outfit after leaving Blackpool and he is excited for the future, having spoken with Rovers’ boss Paul Dickov.
The imposing defender says that Dickov has big ambitions for the Yorkshire-based club, and he wants to play a key role over the coming years.
“I met with the gaffer last week and he sold me on it. He is positive, ambitious and gave me the feeling that the club is on the up and we can do something pretty special this year,” he told Doncaster’s official site.
“I’m only 29 as well and I still believe I have my best years ahead, I will give everything I can for the team and help out the younger boys and whoever is on the pitch.”
MacKenzie is yet to experience promotion during his professional career, but he is hoping that he will be celebrating at the end of this season with his new club.
“I want to get promoted, I want to take the club to the next level to have that feeling of doing it together and getting up,” he added.
“If you ask any player they all want to play at the highest level as they possibly can and it would be nice to play in the Championship with a team you have been promoted with.
“I’ve never been promoted with a team. We fell short with Milton Keynes Dons for a couple of years in the Play-Offs, so hopefully we can get promotion. That is my ambition.”
