Rooney set for a move

Date published: 22 January 2014

ADAM Rooney is set for a permanent transfer to Aberdeen, after gaining permission to talk to the Scottish Premier League club.

The 25-year-old striker, who arrived at Boundary Park in the summer on a two-year contract, has endured a tough time.

Rooney’s form has been poor and he has scored only seven goals, four in the league.

Last week he missed a good chance to level the game at Walsall as a sub, and minutes later saw his penalty kick saved. Rooney was then an unused substitute at Port Vale at the weekend.

Manager Lee Johnson has decided to let the Dublin-born marksman depart to free funds for a new marksman to boost Athletic’s paltry goal record.

Former Inverness striker Rooney enjoyed a prolific spell north of the border when he played for Inverness, netting 53 goals across three seasons.



has to go, well done to the club.


It's a shame but perhaps he will do better in he SPL (Scottish Pub League).

Now LJ bring in someone who can help, someone with height and no nonsense attitude.

he has been poor but service to the forwards has also been poor.

Good for rooney, will do good things in a decent side, didnt have much of a chance to score in a very poor oldham side in a poor league

Hope Adam does sign for Aberdeen , when he was with Inverness he scored a lot of goals but he did get the service, should do well at the Dons, Scottish spl is a better league all round.

probably would have been a good striker given the wright service but our midfield creats next to nothing very poor , we have crab football going nowere , when did we last play to the srengths of the any striker we bring in ,they do nothing here then go to other clubs and score loads of goals ,perhaps these nobodys are all we can afford never known us to be so poor up front since we where 4 th from bottom of the old 4 th div ,poor home form ,no goals the supporters will stop coming ,
