Savage delighted with Hughes' new Blackburn deal

Robbie Savage is delighted Blackburn Rovers have handed boss Mark Hughes a new contract.

He said: "Mark's done a fantastic job and deserves his new contract," added Savage. "I'm sure one day if a Manchester United or a massive, massive club comes calling I'm sure he'll be first in line.

"Who would have thought it? Not many people thought he would even be a manager but to do what he did with Wales and now Blackburn is an incredible achievement."

Hughes signed a new deal last week through to 2010.
