Rovers’ McKay relationship ‘within FA guidelines’

WILLIE McKay’s relationship with Doncaster Rovers falls within Football Association regulations of the use of agents, the Free Press understands.

The Bawtry-based agent has agreed a two year deal with Rovers to work as a consultant for the club and will utilise his extensive contacts to bring players to Doncaster on short term deals from all over Europe.

McKay wrote to the FA last month to outline his plan for Rovers and was informed it would not breach regulations.

However, suggestions in a national newspaper that the deal was ‘rubber-stamped’ are said to be an exaggeration.

It is understood the FA are satisfied there is nothing wrong with the agreement between McKay and Rovers.

But football’s governing body will monitor each deal under the agreement.

All deals involving agents and clubs, as well as those with players, are monitored by the FA, something not unique to the situation with Rovers and McKay.
