4th September 2019

The Dons have made a statement of intent by securing the services of half-back Rangi Chase for the 2020 campaign.

The 33-year-old former Man of Steel joined the club in May on a deal until the end of this season, and has now decided to extend his stay at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: “I’m happy to get it over the line, in my mind I was always going to stay here but it is good to get it all sorted and I can look forward to the future.

“It was hard when I came back and I was frustrated because I wanted to offer a bit more but my fitness levels still needed some work.

“Timing and things like that come with work, I had been out for a long time but I feel like that is improving each week.

“I’m a bit of a different player and it takes time for people to get used to me, the more I have those players around me the better the understanding will be.”

With the Dons still chasing promotion from Betfred League One through the play-offs, Chase is hoping to have a big part to play for Richard Horne’s side.

He added: “I can’t wait for the play-offs to start and I think we’re capable of doing something special if we have the right attitude in games.

“We’ve got the skill and the strike power to beat anyone, we just have to be more consistent and do it on a regular basis.”

Chief executive Carl Hall said: “Rangi has shown his class both on and off the pitch since joining the club, and has given us an added threat in our attacking game.

"Richard Horne made it clear how important it was that we got the deal done, with Rangi being such an important player and other clubs showing a keen interest in him.

“To have secured his signature for next season is massive for our club and hopefully the fans will see the best of him after a full pre-season, but he still has a big part to play in the current campaign as well."
