‘Just real life Football Manager’ – Twitter reacts to Salford City and their new signing

It’s been confirmed this morning that newly promoted Salford City have signed striker Adam Rooney from Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen for an undisclosed fee.

Rooney has agreed a three-year deal to move from the top division in Scotland to the fifth tier of English football.

It’s been reported that Salford City will pay Rooney 4,000-5,000 pounds a week, which was more than he was receiving at Aberdeen.

A Salford spokesman said: “Salford City agreed an undisclosed fee with Aberdeen to bring Adam Rooney to the Peninsula Stadium.

“It’s a fantastic signing and further indication, if any was needed, that the Ammies mean business yet again.

“We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Adam as the club enters yet another exciting chapter, this time in the National League.”

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes told the club website: “We wish Adam all the very best with his new venture and it is always with a heavy heart when you lose a good player who is also a really good person.”

“Since I signed Adam four and a half years ago, he has given us nothing but good value and has been a fantastic boy to work with.”
