I've written up the interview for the latest news archive:
Stephen McLaughlin told iFollow Stags:
"It's been a long time coming, it's been going on for a while now.
"The gaffer ... (was the main attraction) ... I've know him for quite a while now.
"My mind is ready (to play on Saturday), but I don't know if I'm fit enough to go straight back in to game time yet. I think Saturday will be too soon for me.
"We're going to have a game on Tuesday and I'm going to get 45 minutes there, and we'll see how I come out the other end of that.
"I'm a left winger, I like creating and scoring goals. I work hard for the team.
"Last season, the only positions I didn't play was centre half and right back. I played up front, midfield, on the right, on the left, left back. It doesn't really bother me. I like playing on the left or coming in off the right.
(Question about short term deal).
"I've known Graham for a long time, and I trust him, so if I get in and get playing, you never know what will happen after that."
