Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince was full of praise for Tugay after his performance in this week's Carling Cup victory over Everton.

He said: "Tugay may be the grandad of our side but he is still a fantastic player.

"You never lose that passing ability and his brings composure to the team. The older you get you want to play every day and Tugay is no different.

"He still has the enthusiasm of 10 years ago but we have to be careful with him. It is horses for courses."
