Blackburn Rovers midfielder Morton denies being jealous of Liverpool teammate Bajcetic

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Tyler Morton has rubbished claims of envying Liverpool teammate Stefan Bajcetic.

Morton is on-loan at Ewood Park from the Reds.

When asked if he had a feeling of envy watching his team-mate's rise, Morton, speaking to The Times, revealed it was the opposite and he couldn't be more delighted for Bajcetic, who he considers a mate.

He said: “I do get asked that question but I am my own player. Stefan is a top quality footballer and a really nice guy. I was absolutely buzzing for him watching him play.

“Stefan is my mate, team-mate, competition, all in one. I am not a thinker like: 'Oh, it could have been me.' I am thinking what I can change now to help me."

He also said: “I have too many games to think about what is happening in the summer.

“I am a Liverpool fan. The way I play is a Liverpool style — hopefully you can see that in my game.

“But we have a massive ending to the season here. I want Blackburn to get promotion and I want Blackburn to win the FA Cup final. Step by step, I'll see where it takes me."
