For the third time this season Charlie Mulgrew scored directly from a corner kick.

Seven minutes into the second half of Blackburn’s visit to Birmingham the former Celtic placed the ball down to line up a corner.

With two scoring corners to his credit already the Birmingham defence should have known what was coming next but regardless the corner sailed into the net.

Danny Graham put Blackburn in front with eight minutes left but Che Adams hit back with an equaliser- his 21st goal of the season.

The draw leaves Blackburn in 14th place, nine short of a play off spot despite the contribution of 10 goals from central defender Mulgrew.

During six seasons at Celtic Mulgrew scored 30 goals but never one directly from a corner kick.

When Brendan Rodgers arrived at Celtic in May 2016 the former Aberdeen defender was out of contract, after being given training facilities a new short term contract was offered before Mulgrew accepted an offer to join Blackurn where Owen Coyle was in charge cat the time.
