Morten Gamst Pedersen: Rovers days coming to a close

The Norwegian winger has found himself surplus to requirements at Ewood Park with Rovers determined to trim their wage bill as they enter their second season in the Championship.

Pedersen has been with Blackburn since 2004 and has been a regular throughout his time in east Lancashire, although he has yet to even make the bench in the club's opening four games.

However, Under-21 manager Eric Kinder revealed Pedersen had personally asked to feature on Monday night.

"He's a top pro and has been for 10 years," Kinder told Rovers Player.

"He asked me if he could play, we haven't asked him to play in the Under-21s because of who he is.

"He's got 80-odd caps for Norway, he's been here 10 years, he's been a fantastic player for Blackburn Rovers and I hope he carries on being a fantastic player for Blackburn Rovers.

"He came to me and said, 'Eric can I play, I need 90 minutes', and you saw him and he's an absolute credit.

"I admired him before I met him and he's gone up in my estimations 100 per cent, he's a top player and a top bloke."
