As the transfer deadline came to a close at midnight, like a scene from an epic movie, Rovers supporters watched the clock tick down, wondering whether a player who had failed to deliver, for once would move fast enough to find the exit door from Ewood.

As soon as news broke that Celtic had been given permission to speak to Dwight Yorke, Rovers supporters searched for any scrap of information to confirm his departure and it soon became evident that Birmingham had matched the offer.

As the hands of the clock reached towards midnight, supporters swept the beads of worry off their brows as news broke that that Birmingham had signed Yorke for a substantial but undisclosed fee.

The transfer out of Yorke unfortunately over shadowed Rovers surprise signing of former Arsenal and Coventry striker, Jay Bothroyd on a season long loan from Perugia.

Breaking the news to the official Rovers web site about the 22 year old Bothroyd, Graeme Souness is quoted as saying. "He's a young player we've been aware of for quite a while.

"He has scored goals in Serie A and it's a hard league to score in. We hope to bring out the best in him."
