It's a club heading in the right direction

"It’s the perfect place to be so I’m delighted to stay"

Charlie Mulgrew says there is no place he'd rather be after putting pen to paper on a fresh two-and-a-half-year deal with Rovers.

The Scotland international, who arrived at the club in the summer of 2016, extended his Ewood Park stay earlier today.
 
The captain found the net 14 times last season, including the crucial winner that sealed promotion back to the Championship on a memorable night at Doncaster.
 
He has four goals to his name already this term and says it was an easy decision to remain in East Lancashire.
 
“It was pretty straight forward, as Rovers is a club I want to be at. I’ve loved every minute of being here, it’s a great club to be at and a club that’s doing well," the skipper said to iFollow Rovers.
 
“It feels like a club heading in the right direction. Since the manager has come in we’ve been moving well and the plans for the future are great. I’ll be doing all I can to help move the club forward.
 
“It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster, but ever since I walked through the door it’s been a club that I’ve wanted to fight for. After going down I was desperate to help bring the club back.
 
“Now we want to push on. We have a great changing room, a great manager and great staff. It’s the perfect place to be, so I’m delighted to stay.
 
“I loved my first year at the club despite relegation and I wanted to move the club forward. Now we can push on and see how far we can go."
