Last night the great Alan Shearer became one of the first inductees into the Blackburn Rovers Hall of Fame.
While at Blackburn, where he won the Premier League title in 1995 with Kenny Dalglish as the manager, the Gosforth-born icon played 147 times with 114 goals and 2 assists.
In the Premier League, he played 138 times for Blackburn with 112 goals and 2 assists – those figures are just unbelievable, and Alan is one of the greatest footballers England has ever produced.

He was interviewed by Sky Sports before the induction, and this is what Alan said about our new signing Miguel Almiron:
“It has been a long time coming,”
“It is what the fans have wanted and what the club has needed.”
“He is at a brilliant football club and if he can do well there he will be absolutely loved.”
“Hopefully it won’t take him long before he can get in the team and start showing the fans what he can do.”
Good words there from Alan Shearer.
