Fowler makes Blackburn Rovers exit
ROBBIE Fowler could have played his last game for Blackburn Rovers after his three-month pay-as-you-play deal was allowed to expire this week.
The former Liverpool and England striker has struggled to make an impact in his short Ewood Park stay and is now ineligible to feature in today’s Premier League trip to Wigan.
Rovers boss Paul Ince has revealed he is still hoping to hold talks over Fowler’s future but the Lancashire Telegraph understand there are no current plans to extend his spell.
Fowler, 34, has failed to score in his three starts and three substitute appearances since joining Rovers earlier this season and is now expected to explore other career avenues.
Ince though believes Rovers do need a full compliment of five strikers in the squad, sparking suggestions Paul Gallagher could be set for a recall from a loan spell at Plymouth.
He said: “We will have to sit down with the chairman and see where we go.
“You need five strikers in every club so I need to sit down and see what we do with that.”
