Charlie Mulgrew signs for Blackburn Rovers Former Celt signs a three year deal


Blackburn Rovers have signed former Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew on a three-year deal.

The 30-year-old, who left the Scottish champions at the end of last season, was delighted to have signed for the English championship side.


Mulgrew said: “Once I knew of the interest here I couldn’t wait to come down and get everything sorted. It is a great club with a great history and I’m hoping I can help them achieve what the manager here wants to achieve. He’s got a great vision for the club and we are all pushing forward for that and I’m delighted to be involved.

“I had one or two options out there, but once Blackburn came in I knew it was the club for me. There has been a lot of good Scottish players and managers that have been here and there’s a good feeling about the place, so I’m happy to come on board. This is the place I wanted to be.

“I’m feeling fit, I’ve trained for the last three or four weeks at Celtic and with the international break now it is good timing. It is a chance for me to top my fitness up and I’m really looking forward to getting going in the first match.”

The former Wolves, Aberdeen and Celtic player becomes Blackburn’s 11th signing of the window.
