At last!!! Sparky does it again.....

At last!!! Sparky does it again.....

Blackburn Rovers have won the race to sign NAC Breda striker Maceo Rigters. Having earlier completed the signing of young Faroe Island Goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen, Blackburn then moved swiftly to pinch the highly rated hitman.

The Dutch striker, who starred for Holland in this month's U-21 European Championships, has signed a four-year deal at Ewood Park.

Rigters, had been strongly linked with a move to Celtic, but also attracted interest from Newcastle, Rangers and Norwich.

Rigters has just come off international duty after scoring four goals as Holland won the European U-21 Championships.

This is another good coup for the Rovers as the fee is believed to be less than £1 million... he already looks a bargain!

And may I be the first to say... this has registered very high on the 'Rigter Scale', thank you I'll be here all week ;)

Every. Single. Bloody. Time. I don't know how he does it, but Sparky seems to pull these signings out of nowhere.... We'll see how that new chap at Arsenal does, but I think this could be the end of "Arsene knows" and the beginning of a glorious new era of "Sparky knows"...

Do yourselves a favour - visit you tube and watch this boys goals in the recent U-21 tournament - He looks a great signing. I didn't realise that he was the guy that scored the amazing overhead kick that equalised against England.
