Danny Murphy has hailed the displays from Spanish starlet Ruben Rochina in recent weeks.
The former Barcelona boy has been given a new lease of life under manager Henning berg, something that has delighted the Rovers captain.
"I think Ruben, with the position that he is playing in, his last two performances have been vital," said Murphy.
"What Ruben has got is this fantastic ability to take the ball in, wherever he is on the pitch, even under pressure, and keep it.
"He's got great skill, great awareness and for me personally in midfield, when you are getting the ball a lot more off the back four, then you are going to be on the ball a lot more so to have someone like Ruben in space and in the right position it always gives me an option."
