SOCCER: Rovers midfielder Craig Hignett has denied a problem with the Ewood Park crowd.

Hignett was reacting to a report of a section of the crowd's reaction to his performance against Sheffield Wednesday.

He said: "I am not aware of any boo boys at Blackburn, nor have I had any problems whatsoever with the crowd at Ewood Park.

"As a player you are always aware of a few groans from the stands if a pass or a shot goes astray, but that is all part and parcel of football.

"Rovers fans have been fine with me since the day I arrived at the club."
