Blackburn's Khizanishvili happy to play anywhere at Newcastle

Blackburn Rovers defender Zurab Khizanishvili says he's happy to play anywhere on-loan at Newcastle United.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "When you are a player you play where you are told to.

"You use your brain to adapt, and everything went well. I think I can quickly adapt to either position, it's not a big problem for me. I've not played at right-back for Rangers, Blackburn or the national team - maybe only a few.

"But I know I can play there if they need me to.

"Chris (Hughton) just told me before the game he wanted me at right-back at Ipswich, and it's no problem. I will do my best and it is more important to play in the game."
