Big Sam hoping Big Finish will keep Morten here
Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is convinced that the run of games that ended the Ewood Park sides season could sway Morten to stay at Rovers and sign his new deal.
Morten has stalled as only most classic motor engines can over his new contract and has been as non-committal as a customer service desk when asked about it so the omens have not looked good by any means.
But a run of games that has resulted in Arsenal and Aston Villa being dispatched to much fanfare may make Morten see the light as a future of promise at the club gathers steam.
Allardyce, speaking to Sky Sports said when asked if there was any news on the Pedersen contract - 'No, I don't know yet. We are still keeping our fingers crossed.
'Hopefully the last two results will go some way to try and sort it out in our favour and he won't go anywhere else.'
'I've been in a great dressing room (after the Villa win). It borders for me on the time that I had at Bolton, it feels that good.
'There is a lot to be said for that feeling. It doesn't come around too often and I never felt that I would get that type of unity and team spirit within 18 months (since taking over as manager), given all the changes we have had.'
I have a spare pen if you need one Morten?
