Tugay Definitely Retiring At End Of This Season
As reported yesterday, we have recieved definite news today - Blackburn legend Tugay will definitely leave Blackburn at the end of the season, confirmed by Sam Allardyce.
Tugay has played for Rovers since 2001, a Rovers career spanning eight seasons, after he arrived from Rangers for a frankly scandalous £1.3million.
Allardyce, speaking to Rovers official website, said - 'We will say farewell at the end of the season and thank you very much for what you have done for Blackburn.
'Certainly if we remain in the Premier League, Tugay can bow out gracefully after playing at the top level most of the time.
'He has had a fantastic career. But at 38 and the ever-increasing demands of the Premier League, certainly in a physical sense, it means you cannot go on forever.'
I cant even put into words how much Tugay has contributed to life as a Rovers fan over the time he has been here.
All I know is that he has a place in everyone's hearts and will leave a hero.
