Blackburn Rovers should be spending a lot of money in the January transfer window in order to have a realistic chance of staying in the Premier League according to their legend Mick McGrath.

Mick McGrath is considered as a legend at Ewood Park and made 312 appearances for the side. Now, Blackburn are in danger of being relegated from the Premier League, thus becoming the first club to go down after having lifted the Premier League trophy at least once. Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers are the four teams that have lifted the Barclays Premier League.

A lot has been spoken about the financial situation at Blackburn Rovers given that the new owners seem to be unwilling to spend any new money. Upon their takeover, they had promised that players like David Beckham and Ronaldinho will be arriving at Ewood Park.

However, their transfer targets have not been even close to the calibre of these players. Blackburn also owe a payment of £ 10 million to the Premier league sponsor Barclays, which has been spoken about a lot in the media in recent times. There has also been uncertainty surrounding the future of Steve Kean given that the fans do not seem to be coming even a wee bit to accept him.

"I think if the owners were here at the games they would see that they need to spend money. I think they need a centre half and a right back, because it looks like they want to let Michel Salgado go, as well as a midfielder and a striker. They play one up front and Yakubu has done very well but he needs help," Mick McGrath said when asked about the requirements of Blackburn in order to survive in the Premier League this season.
