The former England shot stopper has fallen out of favour at The Latics, and has moved to the Keepmoat in search of first team football. Kirkland was once the most expensive goalkeeper in the UK when Liverpool paid £6 million for him in 2006.
Kirkland started his career with Coventry where he made 24 appearances before joining Liverpool in 2001. Injury cursed his time at Anfield, resulting in him making only 25 appearances in 5 years. During his time at Liverpool he had loan spells with West Brom, Yeovil and Wigan.
Wigan signed the ‘keeper permanently in 2006, where he has made 122 appearances so far, with a loan spell at Leicester last year.
The 30-year-old is eligible to play against Leeds United on Friday.
We wish Chris a warm welcome to Doncaster Rovers, and hope he enjoys a successful spell with the club.
