Boss hails Ruben cameo

2 September 2012

Steve Kean has paid tribute to forward Ruben Rochina after his match-saving goal against Leeds United on Saturday.

The Spaniard came off the bench to rescue a point for Rovers courtesy of a cheeky back-heel after they had seen their two-goal lead overhauled by a resurgent Leeds side.

"He's got all the ability in the world and he has produced a goal out of nothing with his back-heel," enthused Kean.

"I think even before he scored the goal he has come on, he's had the courage to take some players on and get three or four shots away, they weren't all on target but he's produced a good subsitutes operfowmance, a goal and a lift because we tired a little bit."
