‘Stupid decision’ – These Blackburn Rovers fans react to player exit

Rochdale have clinched the signing of defender Tyler Magloire on a season-long loan deal from Blackburn Rovers, as confirmed by their official site.

The 20-year-old centre back joins Dale after making just two appearances for his parent club last season. He appeared in consecutive matches against Wigan and Sheffield Wednesday in March, but has otherwise been restricted to Under 23 football at Ewood Park.

Tony Mowbray clearly sees a spell in senior football as vital to the young defender’s development and Rochdale are the beneficiary. The youngster admitted the change of club would be a new challenge, but one that he is relishing.

“I have been at Blackburn Rovers since I was nine, so I’m stepping out of my comfort zone coming here, which is a good thing,” he told the club site.

“It’ll be a new challenge for me but I’m ready to step up to that challenge. I can’t wait to get started.”

Blackburn fans haven’t exactly welcomed the move. Journalist Rich Sharpe tweeted that although Magloire was leaving on loan, it didn’t mean Tony Mowbray had any plans to replace him with a new face.

That led to a backlash on Twitter, with many Rovers’ fans questioning the club’s decision.
