Kean delight at Goodwillie deal

Blackburn beat Rangers to the signing of the striker earlier this

week when Goodwillie agreed a four-year contract to join from

Dundee United for an initial £2million fee. Kean, whose side

finished in 15th spot in the Premier League last season, is

thrilled with the capture of the 22-year-old. “He’s an exciting

young player and I think it was time for him to move from Scotland,

he was Young Player of the Year up there, scoring 18 goals which is

something we can certainly do with,” Kean told the club’s official

website. “He’s a player that scores all types of goals, headers,

left-foot, right-foot, tap-ins, which are always the best for the

strikers to score. “I think he’ll give us a different dimension.

He’s bubbly, he’s a natural finisher and I think he’ll be a great

addition to the already up and coming young ones.” Goodwillie could

make his Rovers debut in Saturday’s friendly against Kilmarnock

after receiving international clearance.
