Charlie a fantastic leader for us

"He leads by example both on and off the pitch and has so much experience," says Rovers striker Danny Graham, who has heaped praise on team-mate Charlie Mulgrew.

A rock at the back first, the Rovers skipper is also the highest-scoring defender in England, with 14 strikes to his name this season.
Mulgrew is just three goals behind Graham, and four behind top goalscorer Bradley Dack, and the former has paid tribute to the 32-year-old Scot after a fine campaign at the heart of the Rovers defence.
“Charlie’s been a credit this season and was another player who stayed when he probably had offers to move on in the summer," Danny told iFollow Rovers.
“He’s had a brilliant season and is a great captain and leader. He’s got 14 goals from centre half and that’s not bad at all.
“Charlie has pranks in him and gets involved with the jokes, but he can be serious as well. He’s a superb leader. He leads by example both on and off the pitch and has so much experience in playing against sides like Barcelona in the Champions League and plenty of other top sides.
“He’s catching up with me, but in all seriousness we’re delighted to have him both as our captain and for his influence in the dressing room."
And aside from Mulgrew, Danny has also loved everything he's seen in the Rovers squad this season, not just on the pitch, but in the dressing room, too.
“Over the last few months the dressing room and banter has been great," he added. "There have been loads of pranks and I’d say it’s been the best dressing room that I’ve been involved in."
