Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has provided injury update on captain Charlie Mulgrew ahead of this Saturday’s clash with Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United, after he was taken off as a precaution in Scotland’s game against Israel after putting them 1-0 up from the spot.

Blackburn Rovers captain Charlie Mulgrew missed four games throughout the month of September, but has returned to football and is set to return to the Rovers lineup for Saturday’s match against Leeds United. However, in Scotland’s match with Israel, the defender was taken off as a precaution with a reported tight hamstring.

Despite being subbed off, the skipper made sure he phoned up manager Mowbray post-match to reassure any concerns he had about his captain’s fitness. The 54-year-old told the Lancashire Telegraph:

“Charlie trained today, did everything.

“He’s good, to be fair to him that’s his professionalism. He phoned me that night after he came off against Israel after scoring a penalty, he was on the phone to me within an hour and said his hamstring was a bit tight but that he thought he would be okay.

“We managed to get him released from the squad for the second game and he came back.

“He trained today and as long as there’s no reaction he will train tomorrow and then be okay for the weekend.”
