Reports suggest Jogger to leave Ewood

Reports suggest Jogger to leave Ewood

There are reports surfacing in the papers this morning that a secret battle has been conducted behind closed doors to secure the Ewood exit of much maligned Rovers midfielder Keith Andrews.

Andrews has reportedly been told by the Ewood powers that be that he is down the pecking order at the club and with the imminent arrival at Ewood Park of Radosav Petrovic that his days in the Premier League are numbered.

That has left Championship clubs scrambling to get hold of the hottest property at Rovers that wears a number 17 shirt with his departure likely be sealed this week.

Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town have all enquired about his availability and it seems that Ipswich are winning the race with Andrews allegedly not interested in a move to dirty Leeds.

However it happens, it seems a good time for Andrews to secure himself a fresh start elsewhere - he has never had the backing of the Ewood faithful and in 3 years has yet to convince as a Premier League footballer.

All jokes aside, I think this is best for all concerned.

You are right with the 'much maligned', usually unjustly. I have heard 'fans' boo him when he has been introduced to a game from the bench due to an injury. He is a better player than most give him credit, Ireland realise this. Good luck to him at Ipswich, I am sure he will do well there, especially if he gets the backing of the supporters, something he never had in even one match at Ewood.

I wish Keith Andrews all the very best in whatever he chooses. A true pro, he has been treated appallingly by sections of the Blackburn end who should be thoroughly ashamed. He may not be the most talented player we have had but he is an honest, hard working individual who always commits fully to the Rovers cause. He hasn't bleated over the boo boys, or his lack of starts, he just gets on with it...........shame many others cannot say the same. Good luck Keith and thanks for all your efforts.

Aye, fair enough - good luck to him. Not good enough for the Prem, but I reckon he'll be a very fair player in the Championship.

I never taught much of him when he first played for Ireland and when he played for blackburn but one thing about him that impressed me was that he never gave up in a game. Plus when he came back from injury recently he really looked sharp for Ireland, scoring two goals, 1 from a set piece since he came back he also scored in the pre-season game against A stanley. i think we are going to lose a guy who is just hitting a bit of form but if the crowd dont get behind him they is no point him playing for us, so farewell keith.

Good luck Keith. Gave your best when you played and got a bad rep due to who it was who brought you to Rovers. Not prem standard but you don't turn that opportunity down!
