Chancellor Brown lures Andrews to Raith Rovers

GLASGOW, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Scottish third division club Raith Rovers have British Chancellor Gordon Brown to thank for signing Trinidad and Tobago defender Marvin Andrews.

Brown, widely-tipped to succeed Tony Blair as British Prime Minister, persuaded Andrews to return to his favourite club, his press office said on Thursday.

A spokesman for the Chancellor told Reuters: 'I can confirm that (Gordon Brown) asked him to sign.

'Gordon is delighted at Marvin's return to the club and is looking forward to watching him help Raith Rovers back up to the Scottish Premier League.

'He's a great guy as well as a great footballer and it's brilliant to have him.'

The spokesman would not comment on reports that Brown had persuaded local businessmen to pay the player's wages.

The 30-year-old Andrews, a devout Christian who was ordained last month at Kirkcaldy's Zion Praise International Church, first moved to Raith in season 1997/98 from Carib FC.

He joined Livingston in 2000 and then signed for Rangers in May 2004 but was released by the Glasgow club when new French boss Paul Le Guen replaced Alex McLeish in the summer.

Andrews caused a stir last season when he refused surgery on a cruciate ligament injury at Rangers, insisting God would cure him. He returned to action in a matter of weeks, confounding medical experts.
