Adam Rooney says the ambition shown by Salford City is the reason why he has decided to swap Aberdeen for England's fifth tier.

The Dubliner has been part of an Aberdeen side which has finished best of the rest in Scotland for four straight years but will now be plying his trade in the Vanarama National League after signing a three-year deal.

Salford are part-owned by ex-Manchester United stars Phil and Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - known as the Class of '92 - and they have big plans to transform the club into a Football League outfit.

"I felt my time was coming to an end here and the opportunity came up at Salford," said Rooney. "The ambition Salford have really intrigues me and where they want to take it."
