Khizanishvili signs new three-years Rovers deal
Blackburn defender Zurab Khizanishvili has signed a new three-year deal with the Lancashire club.
Georgia captain Khizanishvili, 26, arrived at Ewood Park permanently in the summer of 2006 following a loan spell from Rangers.
He is now under contract with the Premier League side until 2011 despite having made only a handful of appearances in the league this campaign.
Another Rovers player who has been far from a regular in recent times, Republic of Ireland international Steven Reid, is glad to be back playing following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Reid, 26, played in Blackburn's first three top-flight matches of the 2006-07 season but was then struck down by back and cruciate ligament injuries.
But he has now made 10 appearances for Rovers this campaign - the latest coming against Middlesbrough last weekend - and is hoping to finish the season on a positive note.
'On a personal level it is good to be out there,' Reid told Blackburn's official website.
'Having spent such a long time on the treatment table a little kick here and a ripped boot there won't stop me. Unless it is a serious injury I won't be getting any more treatment, that's for sure.
'I felt in that second half of the match against Middlesbrough that I was starting to get up to that standard of a season and a half ago.
'I'm starting to get the fitness back and although it is going to take a few more games, it is pleasing to get another 90 (minutes) under the belt and hopefully now I can stay in there for the rest of the season.'
