Man Utd's Simpson puts positive spin on Blackburn loan

It was Sir Alex Ferguson who convinced him that Ewood Park was the right destination for him.

Simpson told the club's official website: "I spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson and he said I want you to go to Blackburn it will be a good opportunity for you, so I'm just over the moon.

"It is a big club, it has got a big history, they've won the Premiership in the past, and with Paul Ince as a manager as a boy I used to watch him playing for Manchester United.

"It is Premiership football, at a good level, they are a good footballing club so it is a good move for me."
