Rigters said: "Blackburn and Kilmarnock had agreed a deal and I spoke to their manager Jimmy Calderwood.
"I was excited about scoring goals in the SPL, I had packed my things and I was ready to drive to Scotland when I received a call that I needed to wait.
"It was frustrating, I was ready to go but I was told that Sam Allardyce did not want me to go unless he brought in another experienced striker.
"Just after five o'clock the club told me that I could not go, I was devastated.
"But I now look at the positives. Sam Allardyce didn't want me to go and now it is up to me to break into the first team and show what I can do."
