FORMER Celtic captain has pledged his future to Blackburn and former Celtic boss Tony Mowbray by signing a new two-year deal with the club.
Mulgrew has reinvented himself down south, becoming a fan favourite at Ewood Park and the resident set piece taker.
As one of the more senior men in the team, Mulgrew takes the responsibility and chips in with his fair share of goals from the spot.
Blackburn has certainly benefitted from the former Parkhead man’s mettle and experience – so far he has played 89 times for the club scoring 21 goals.
Mulgrew was offered a reduced deal at Celtic back under Ronny Deila but didn’t take up the option at the time. However, when Brendan Rodgers got there the contract was taken off the table and although Mulgrew was still training with the club after his contract expiry, there was no desire from Rodgers to keep him at the club.
He has found a new home and lease of life with Blackburn and it has to be applauded.
With Tony Mowbray calling the shots as manager, there is certainly a Celtic connection working well at Ewood Park.
