    At the time Blackburn signed Beattie he was gaining the reputation of becoming one of the game's potential great players. A bewitching ball artist with fire and punch he never developed the consistency that would have confirmed his promise. Twice for the Rovers he scored exquisite goals after long, sinuous dribbles but eventually he was off-loaded to Birmingham where his temper brought him the threat of a permanent suspension if he misbehaved again.
