The 34-year-old agreed a short-term contract with the Robins towards the end of the previous campaign, and he featured in four games. And, the club announced today that Simpson had agreed fresh terms, which will see him involved in Nigel Pearson’s squad for next season.
With the right-back having played for the boss at Leicester City earlier in his career, a new deal was always in the pipeline when Pearson was named as the manager on a long-term basis.
Did each of these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Bristol City?
Given that connection, and the fact Simpson has played at the highest level in the past, it’s fair to say that many fans were satisfied with this deal from a football perspective, as they recognise how the experienced former Manchester United youngster will help the squad.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the deal from Twitter…

Decent backup for his experience. Need another right back still.
