Morten Gamst Pedersen: Blackburn legend leaves for Turkey

Morten Gamst Pedersen: Blackburn legend leaves for Turkey

The 31-year-old has been with Rovers since 2004, making just under 350 appearances for them in all competitions.

But he was left out in the cold by new manager Gary Bowyer in the early part of the 2013-14 season and then told he could leave on a free transfer.

He was linked with a move to Denmark with FC Copenhagen, but instead it is the Turkish Super Lig that he will be plying his trade in for the rest of this season and beyond.

Karabukspor are enjoying a positive start to the campaign with four points from their opening two games, and they sit in second place behind leaders Besiktas, the only team in Turkey's top division with a 100% record.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
