Madden says Iron did not play to his strengths in parting shot at Alexander


Ex-Iron striker Paddy Madden has fired a parting shot at Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander, suggesting his poor form and lack of goals was due to the fact the Iron were not playing to his strengths.

And Madden, who secured a £150,000 move to Fleetwood Town earlier this month, believes his debut goal and assist in the Cod Army’s 2-1 win at Southend United shows exactly what he is capable of when he is used correctly.

The former Glanford Park favourite, who had only scored two league goals for the Iron this term, added that there were few words exchanged with Iron boss Graham Alexander before he sealed the move.

“We did not say much to each other.

“I won’t hold grudges with anyone but it was obviously a frustrating time there not being able to play to my strengths.

“Now you see what happens when I do play to my strengths!

“The gaffer here (Uwe Rosler) plays me to my strengths and that is the reward you are going to get.”

Madden faces his former side with his new club on 3rd February.
