Morten Gamst Pedersen says he intends on staying with Blackburn Rovers.
The Norwegian midfielder was recently called a ‘pensioner’ by club owner Shebby Singh who suggested he wanted to part with the player but Pedersen hit back by scoring the winning goal on the weekend.
Pedersen curled home a 79th minute winner against Leicester City and celebrated by grabbing a walking stick from the bench which he felt was a humorous way of dealing with the situation.
"It was a good celebration. When I arrived at Ipswich for the opening game, the walking stick was hanging on my peg in the dressing room,” he said.
"I can't control what people are saying. But if I have a problem with someone, I will go and see them and sort it that way. It is easier than doing it through the media.
"I am not going to say all my thoughts because I think that is between me, the management and the owners.
"I try to keep things away from the media in that way. Of course I read newspapers, people talk to me and you hear things. Sometimes you are wondering what is going on.
"But Sunday is eight years since I signed for Rovers. I said earlier I am committed to Blackburn.
"I was one of the first people to say this. I have had offers to leave before but I have stayed.
"The main thing is to get back to the Premier League. That is where we want to be."
