Rovers defender Charlie Mulgrew became the first defender to win the League One Player of the Month award in over two years and admitted it was an "honour" to collect it.

The 31-year-old has led by example throughout the campaign but has really shown his class at both ends for Rovers in the last month, playing his part in a mean defence but also weighing in with four goals himself.

In fact, no defender has scored more goals in the top four divisions in the country that Rovers' Scottish skipper.

“You could look about the squad and any number of players could have (won it) but I’m honoured it’s me but it’s a real reflection of the whole team," Mulgrew told iFollow.

“Everyone has a different role in the team and there’s a good team spirit in the changing room and we are all pushing in the right direction for the same thing and I’m honoured that’s it’s  me but it really could have been anyone of the boys.

“I’m delighted that it’s me but also that we’re winning games which is the most important thing.

"From a personal point view scoring a few goals and getting the award and as a team winning games and hopefully that’s the start of a good run.

“It was always going to take us time to get used to the league and nothing gives you that experience other than playing in it."

But instead of basking in the glory, Mulgrew's fully focussed on making December month to remember for Rovers.

“Playing a few games gets you used to the level and the kind of games you are playing in which is totally different," he added.

“We’re on a good run at the minute, we’re not taking that for granted or getting complacent and I think that’s the most important thing that as much as it is a good run we don’t get complacent and all keep at the top of our game.

“We’re looking forward to the next game and take that as it comes."
