Morten Gamst Pedersen refuses to rule out stay at Blackburn Rovers

FANS’ favourite Morten Gamst Pedersen refuses to accept his Blackburn Rovers career is over and admits he could remain at Ewood Park for another year.

The Norwegian midfielder has been told he can leave on a free transfer after nine years at Ewood Park and that has alerted several clubs, both here and in Europe.

But Pedersen, Blackburn’s longest serving player, said: “Blackburn Rovers is the club I love, I’ve played most of my football here and it feels like my home.

“I’ve got a twelve month contract and it is still possible I could stay.

“It is up to me – nobody can force me out.

“I’m part of Blackburn and I’m very proud of that.”

Pedersen, a £1.5m signing from Tromso nearly a decade ago, was linked with a move back to the top flight following Blackburn’s relegation from the Premier League but chose to remain at Ewood Park.

However, Pedersen has not been involved in either of the club’s league matches this season and did not even making the bench for Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest.

He added: “It is hard to predict what is going to happen, and although the club said I can leave on a free and I can talk to other clubs, it doesn’t mean I’ve played my last game for Blackburn.

“You just don’t know in football do you?

“So much has been written about my situation recently, but things can change very fast in football.

“I do have so many wonderful memories of what has happened to me at Blackburn in that period, though.

“Memories are always good to have when you get older, and they can also give you a little bit of inspiration as well.

“I really care about the people at Blackburn Rovers, not only my team-mates but the people who work at the training ground, the fans and elsewhere “Many of them have become my friends and that means a lot to me.

“Blackburn will always have a special place in my heart.”

With Blackburn attempting to reduce their wage bill to fall in line with the Football League’s financial fair play regulations, Rovers have confirmed they will not stand in Pedersen’s way if he wants to move on.

Meanwhile, Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer remained positive after Darius Henderson’s late strike condemned Rovers to their first defeat of the Championship campaign against Nottingham Forest.

“It wasn’t a classic of a game but I thought we showed fighting qualities and we pushed a very good Forest side all the way,” said the Ewood boss.

“But we can play a lot better than that. I always thought it would be a set play, wonder strike, or a mistake that would win the game – and so it proved.

“Our fans will know that we didn’t play as well as we did at Derby, but what they did see was a fighting performance and fighting qualities.”

I doubt peders is on prem wages. Contracts these days allow for every eventuality including relegation. That's Givet's problem, he didn't like the pay cut. Peders said at the drop he was happy to take a cut so stop knocking him. He is a top pro with a cross 2nd to none. Okay he has slowed down but still has lots to offer. A different manager would no doubt want him.

It's not so much the negativity God, it's more the fact that it takes more than finishing 3 whole points above the enemy or winning a throw in to create mass joy & celebration. Suppose that comes with 40 years of failure.

I don't think Pedersen can quite give us what we need anymore but he more than deserves the option to play out the rest of his contract and given a good send off.

I wouldn't be too fussed if he was to leave before the window because his wages would be better spent elsewhere but if he wants to play out the rest of his contract then he should be more than welcome to.

I am sorry bigste but ' a cross second to none ' ? What player have you been watching? Judge made more crosses on Saturday and I may add quality crosses and corners than Pederson has done during the past 2 years. Pederson simply isnt good enough on a consistent basis and hasnt been for a long time. He won't find another club because no one will pay what he earns. I wish him the best because over the years he has served Rovers well but now it's time to go.

Poor Blackburn fans - been used to rubbing our noses in it haven't you for the last 20 odd years - what will you have to cling onto when the 34 year record is over?

Now the boot is on the other foot,and for some reason or other you don't appear to be able to take the banter, unfortunately you are back at the level you were before Fat Jack spunked his life savings on you, and yet you feel you deserve better?
I'm reluctant to comment on anything that is associated with some of the puerile invective that we observe in these columns between Blackburn and Burnley fans, but please don't extend the insults to Jack Walker. He was a Blackburn man who loved his football club and if he decided to show this with financial backing then good luck to him. Bob Lord was an unashamedly Burnley man and Burnley supporter who as Chairman gave a lot to his club and I would never stoop so low as to denigrate his achievements. Burnley were the top team in the 1960's although I doubt that Mr God was around at the time. And just for the record that’s when rivalry between the two clubs was meaningful!

To match it Burnley have got to go 34 years without defeat to Rovers, win major honors and inflict a few derby day massacres.

Until that that day has arrived, then and only then, will the boot be on the other foot.

Forgetting his age he's still better than josh king by a long mile. Play him in CM and he will do better than Marrow or Lowe, he scored and assisted in pre season and goals are few and far between at the moment so his type of player is what we need and I am sure he would be willing to take a paycut if asked rather than forced out of the club.

He has made a lot of money at Ewood, but times have changed and he knows our financial situation. If he loved our club, as he says he does and which I don't doubt, could he not agree to a cut in pay to stay ? Say, from 25,000 to 5,000 a week ? That is still a very fat pay packet to most folks paying to watch him, and would get him through his final year at Ewood.

His form would say otherwise.
How can you say his form would say otherwise?, He never plays!, Pederson on a bad day is better than any of our current first choice midfielders, In the limited time he played in per season he scored a great free kick and could be the difference in the games we draw or narrowly lose like Derby and Forest.
It's all about opinions and in mine he hasn't performed to high enough standard consistently for years. He'll likely be one of the top earners that we can no longer afford so on balance his time is up.

I say give him ten continuous games before calling him, but yes, if he doesn't fit into GB's plans, then he's better off elsewhere.

The Mail article offered nothing new about Venkys, only an invention that they were not happy with recent recruitment. No interviews, no quotes.

It did say that Rovers could count themselves unlucky to have taken only one point in the League and to have been down to ten against Carlisle.

Overall it is a positive article - but then, it is the Daily Mail so not to be taken seriously.

MGP lost his focus a long time ago as the wage made him comfortable at Ewood, so all this I love Rovers......Yep OK, course you do !

Rhodes has his weaknesses but then...play to his strengths then! He is a box player that can finish. Sure, he has no pace, so don't expect him to win one-on-ones.
*
Shearer's £3.2 million was a record fee in its day. Today Bale is going for £85 million? That makes Rhodes the equivalent of £320,000.

If you are going to criticise, be fair about it and compare like with like. To write-off Rhodes and Rovers after 2 league games is a tad extreme, don't you think?

Well well well, who's infatuated again God? You just can't resist can you? You claim Rovers fans are obsessed with your self proclaimed wonder club, and yet here you are again, posting on a Rovers article about a player that broke your hearts in the cup.

Well seeing as posting on another team's articles seems to be de rigueur I thought I would give it a shot.

I don't like it on here - way too much negativity.
It's not so much the negativity God, it's more the fact that it takes more than finishing 3 whole points above the enemy or winning a throw in to create mass joy & celebration. Suppose that comes with 40 years of failure.

Poor Blackburn fans - been used to rubbing our noses in it haven't you for the last 20 odd years - what will you have to cling onto when the 34 year record is over?

Now the boot is on the other foot,and for some reason or other you don't appear to be able to take the banter, unfortunately you are back at the level you were before Fat Jack spunked his life savings on you, and yet you feel you deserve better?
I'm reluctant to comment on anything that is associated with some of the puerile invective that we observe in these columns between Blackburn and Burnley fans, but please don't extend the insults to Jack Walker. He was a Blackburn man who loved his football club and if he decided to show this with financial backing then good luck to him. Bob Lord was an unashamedly Burnley man and Burnley supporter who as Chairman gave a lot to his club and I would never stoop so low as to denigrate his achievements. Burnley were the top team in the 1960's although I doubt that Mr God was around at the time. And just for the record that’s when rivalry between the two clubs was meaningful!

Shearer's £3.2 million was a record fee in its day. Today Bale is going for £85 million? That makes Rhodes the equivalent of £320,000.

There is no possible comparison between Shearer and Rhodes, Shearer had everything, pace, strength, aggression and could jump to head a ball, Rhodes has none of these assets, but plonk him on the box on the penalty spot and get the ball to him and he will score goals.

I would compare Rhodes to Lineker or even Greaves, but not Shearer.

In today's inflated PL and if Shearer were the same age as Rhodes you would be looking for £50 million + for him, and even Jack Walker in his pomp couldn't have afforded that.

Never, if Bale is worth 85 million then shearer would be nigh on 90, shearer scored about 34 goals a season, when he wasn't injured. Ronaldo did it once and was sold for 80 million. I know he does it now in the spanish league. But the spanish league is like the scottish league.
Can you imagine if somone came in nowadays and spent that on one player and then did it again and again. The stuff of dreams. My only regret during that era is we never signed Zidane. Now that would have sealed a long stay at the very top.

Zidane? "ifs and and's, pots and pans", didn't happen, but we had a great time while the party lasted didn't we? and for all us old buggers who stood on crumbling terraces in all weathers watching Rovers whatever league they were in, well it was the equivalent of going to heaven.

The only mistake Jack Walker made was he didn't take advantage of winning the PL by investing heavily in the squad the following season, that might have put some steadier foundations under us, perhaps Zidane and a couple of others, but these guys prefer the big city clubs, so we will never know.

I was only quoting £50M as an example figure, in reality who do you compare Shearer to nowadays? Messi? Suarez? Ronaldo?

Chill.

Suarez, Bale and Rooney will go, it's inevitable because the unrest they will create behind the scenes if they aren't allowed to go will damage their current clubs.

Besides that their agents all need new yachts.

Dann, well lets be honest the two PL clubs he has played for in the last 5 years have been relegated so if he wan't to stay fine, if he wants to go, fine, lets see if he can get his hat trick.

Looking at Rhodes form so far this season I think it very unlikely anyone will come in for him.

Morten Gamst Dancingqueen, without a doubt the campest player ever to (dis)grace the English football leagues. A limp-wristed diving cheat more interested in beating his man off than beating his man. Another football mercenary quite content to sit on the bench and pick up his fat salary if no other club will match it. A typical example of a modern Blackburn Rovers player, all greed and no morals. Shameful.
He didn't look very camp to me when I watched him smash one into the roof of the net past you lot in 2005

Fulham and Everton are showing interest in Blackburn Rovers defender Scott Dann.
The 26-year-old wants to leave the Championship club and Rovers are even willing to consider a loan to get his wages off the books. Who Next.?????????
Taken from today's Daily Mail.
Just imagine if Dann and Rhodes do leave, and I don't think Venkys have any desire to keep hold of them, where would that leave us?
Suarez, Bale and Rooney - all their clubs have dug their heels in whereas Shaw has flown the white flag to the rest of football.
That's it, just bury your heads in the sand and ignore the facts. It'll get us a long way, I must say.........Not.

Well well well, who's infatuated again God? You just can't resist can you? You claim Rovers fans are obsessed with your self proclaimed wonder club, and yet here you are again, posting on a Rovers article about a player that broke your hearts in the cup.

The irony eh?
Well seeing as posting on another team's articles seems to be de rigueur I thought I would give it a shot.

I don't like it on here - way too much negativity.
It's not so much the negativity God, it's more the fact that it takes more than finishing 3 whole points above the enemy or winning a throw in to create mass joy & celebration. Suppose that comes with 40 years of failure.

In a while crocodile xx
Poor Blackburn fans - been used to rubbing our noses in it haven't you for the last 20 odd years - what will you have to cling onto when the 34 year record is over?

Now the boot is on the other foot,and for some reason or other you don't appear to be able to take the banter, unfortunately you are back at the level you were before Fat Jack spunked his life savings on you, and yet you feel you deserve better?
I'm reluctant to comment on anything that is associated with some of the puerile invective that we observe in these columns between Blackburn and Burnley fans, but please don't extend the insults to Jack Walker. He was a Blackburn man who loved his football club and if he decided to show this with financial backing then good luck to him. Bob Lord was an unashamedly Burnley man and Burnley supporter who as Chairman gave a lot to his club and I would never stoop so low as to denigrate his achievements. Burnley were the top team in the 1960's although I doubt that Mr God was around at the time. And just for the record that’s when rivalry between the two clubs was meaningful!
EXACTLY AS A CLARET TO THE CORE I HAD THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR UNCLE JACK A REAL LANCASTRIAN NOT SOME JUMPED UP FOREIGN **** I ALSO HAVE GREAT RESPECT FO MR KHAN AT STANLEY ANOTHER TRUE LANCASTRIAN AS WAS OUR VERY OWN BOB LORD.THE SITUATION AT ROVERS IS A TRAGEDY I DONT CARE WHAT OUR LOT SAY ALL THREE CLUBS AR HISTORIC AND TO SEE ROVERS ASSET STRIPED AND RUINED MAKES ME WEEP FOR THE ENGLISH GAME YOU SEE LIKE THE CLARETS ROVERS ARE A REAL CLUB WHO GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE FROM TOWN HAVE SUPPORTED WHAT WOULD VENKS ETC KNOW ABOUT THAT ANSWER SWEET FA G-D FORBID THEY BRAKE ROVERS NO DERBY S-D THAT ASK THE LADS AT BRADFORD CITY WHAT ITS LIKE WITH NO BRADFORD PARK AVENUE IN THE LEAGUE SO TO ALL OF OUR LOT WHO GLOTE OVER THE MESS THE BLUES ARE IN THINK LONG AND HARD
