Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer was delighted with goalscorer Jordan Rhodes in their 3-2 win over Bournemouth.

Bowyer lavished praise on Rhodes for putting aside Hull's interest in him to inspire Blackburn to victory.

"He's not for sale - the owners have said," Bowyer insisted.

"The lad's been magnificent, I cannot praise him highly enough. He's gone on another level in terms of how he is. I kept in constant communication and asked him how he was - he said, 'I want to play'."
