Blackburn Snap Up Robbie Fowler

Karen PatelCorrespondent ISeptember 12, 2008

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has secured a short-term deal with Blackburn Rovers.

Manager Paul Ince gave the 33-year-old a trial this summer, and decided to offer him a "pay-as-you-play" deal after being impressed by his efforts. 

The contract will last three months, and Robbie is expected to be included in the squad to face Arsenal on Saturday. 

Fowler scored 120 goals during eight years at Liverpool, before moving on to Leeds, Manchester City, back to Anfield, and then Cardiff City.
