Rob joined Latics from Championship side Watford at the beginning of the 2011/12 season, arriving at the DW Stadium as a young defender with big potential. Already a regular for the Republic of Ireland Under 21 side, Rob has also captained his country on a number of occasions and displayed his leadership qualities at the heart of defence throughout the first half of last season before heading out on loan to Accrington Stanley for the remainder of the campaign. After three appearances for the League One side, Kiernan suffered an ankle injury that ruled him out for the rest of the term, a bitter blow after producing some impressive performances. A technically gifted centre half, Rob is strong in the air, organises his defence and sets the bar high through his own 100% attitude on and off the pitch.
