Championship: Rovers confirm Brown deal

The 36-year-old has been training with Rovers since leaving the Black Cats in the summer, but a deal had been delayed by a calf injury Brown suffered during pre-season.

The former England international will also spend time working with Damien Johnson and David Dunn coaching the club's Under-23 side, and Rovers boss Owen Coyle is delighted to have him on board.
Coyle has praised Brown's attitude during training and believes he will be a valuable addition to the Rovers camp until the end of the season, when the situation will be reviewed.
"He's been outstanding," Coyle said. "He's a constant professional - his attitude has been exemplary around the training ground with the young players, helping and encouraging them."
