Danny Harrison says the competition for places among the Club's central midfielders can only be beneficial.
The 29-year old returned to Rovers this summer and joins a squad that includes James Wallace, Max Power and Liam Palmer.
Whereas his first spell at the Club saw him as one of the younger midfielders playing alongside the likes of Jason McAteer, Mark Rankine, Gary Jones and Micky Mellon, this time around he is the most experienced of the four with more than 350 appearances to his name.
"Competition is what squads thrive on and what players need to keep themselves going," he said.
"I've always had to work for my place so that's nothing new.
"I'll just go about my business the way I normally do and see where it takes me.
"I've got a few years on all three of them.
"I went away from Tranmere to get experience and I've built myself a career.
"I've played a good number of games and I've come back with a good bit of experience under my belt that I'm sure I'll be able to add to the squad."
