Blackburn Rovers midfielder/striker Paul Gallagher isn't expect to return to Ewood Park this summer and Gallagher has said that he now accepts that his Rovers career is over.
Gallagher (who scored a superb goal for his loan club Plymouth Argyle on Saturday) is in the latest of a string of loan moves and hasn't featured in the Premier League for Rovers in nearly two-years. The 24-year-old is due back at the club when the season ends, however, Gally was hoping to have been given a chance under Sam Allardyce but now concedes this isn't going to happen and he will be moving on in the summer.
Gallagher told The Mirror: "I've not really spoken directly to Sam about my future. I went back to Blackburn for some treatment when I had a bad knee and shook his hand. The next thing I knew I was watching Sky and it said they were willing to listen to offers for me.
"When Sam came in I thought it might be a chance to get back. Blackburn were not doing well, and are still struggling, but it never happened. That was a kick in the teeth, but now I've got my head round it."
Personally (as I have said before) Gally leaving in the summer doesn't surprise me, the only thing that has surprised me is the fact that the Scottish International hasn't moved on sooner. I really feel sorry for Gally as I believe that he has never really been given the chance that he probably deserved at Ewood, no matter how badly those ahead of him played. I hope that he gets the right move and can move his career forwards again.
