Former Rovers man Andy Findlay has joined Luton in a coaching role as the Hatters prepare for life in the Premier League.

Findlay started out as performance analyst at Ewood Park in 2010 before taking up a role in the Irish FA.

The 33-year-old also worked with Manchester City’s Academy and Scotland’s Under-21 side before spending four years in the first team set-up at Manchester United.

He then served as head of performance analysis at Wolves where he worked alongside Rob Edwards, who was in charge of the club’s Under-23 side at the time.

Findlay moved overseas to take up a role at FC Copenhagen in 2020 and also had a stint as performance analyst for the Norwegian FA.

He will now serve as analyst coach as the Hatters aim to build on last season’s promotion via the play-offs.

"I see Luton Town as the next step for me now that I need to develop even further with,” Findlay told the club website.

“This is a great opportunity and you see with the club now and how it’s grown - but even from my first few days - you can see what a close group it is and a together group it is.

“You can see why the club has had so much success, so it’s nice to be a part of that.

“The biggest thing for me is not to come in and change things. It’s just to add little bits where I can for the point-one per cents, the one per cents, to add things on top.

“As soon as I got the call, it was something that interested me so I thought ‘OK, let’s go for it’. I’m delighted to be here.”

Luton kick-off the new Premier League season with a trip to Brighton on Saturday, August 12.

Edwards added: “Andy’s vastly experienced as an analyst but is going to be coming in as an analyst coach as I want him out on the grass with us to help from a technical point of view.

“He sees the game really well and I want to be able to look at things live and real time, because the game is so random you can miss things during training.

“I want to be able to make sure we can see things and review it there and then on the grass, if we need to.

“He’s going to work really closely with us from a tactical point of view, and he’s going to lead the analysis department.

“He’s got phenomenal experience working at first team level under Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho at United, he’s worked in Man City’s academy and progressed at that football club as well.

“He has amazing experience and is very good at what he does.”
