The 1-0 win over Manchester Utd at Old Trfford has secured Rovers' Premiership future for another season, and its happened a little earlier than what Souness thought.

"We've not entertained very much here at Ewood this year and we've been put in a difficult situation," Souness told Sky Sports News after the game.

"You are always thinking the worst and I had visions of the last game of the season of us going to need something against Birmingham.

"They have got three ex-players and I thought one of them would get the goal, the old Denis Law thing which beat Man United.

"Thay had a few big players missing and we had a few big names out so I'm absolutely delighted."
