Goodwillie delighted with first days at Blackburn

David Goodwillie is delighted with his move to Blackburn Rovers.

David Goodwillie is delighted with his move to Blackburn Rovers.

The 22-year-old moved from Dundee United for a fee thought to be £2million plus £800,000 in potential add-ons - and in the face of concerted efforts by Rangers to sign the Scottish Professional Footballers' Association young player of the year.

Goodwillie said on Thursday: "When you come here and see the set-up at Blackburn you understand why players would turn their back on the Old Firm.

"In the end it was not that difficult a decision to make, I wanted a fresh start and I'm really looking forward to it.

"In the Scottish Premier League you are playing against teams like St Mirren every other week - to play against teams like Arsenal and Manchester United instead every week is just a different class."
