Gardner giving Birmingham boss a pleasant selection headache
Birmingham chief Alex McLeish has admitted that Craig Gardner’s versatility has provided him with an alternative at right-back, reports the Birmingham Mail.
“We signed Craig knowing his versatility, that he could cover Stevie Carr,” said McLeish.
“We tried Liam Ridgewell there in a training session a couple of days ago as Gardner had been doing really well in midfield.
“There was a dilemma there, whether I take away that confidence he’s got in there just now.
“Liam did fine, so I know I can turn to him if I need to move Gardner to centre midfield.”
