West Brom said goodbye to the Premier League with a stalemate
Blackburn and West Bromwich Albion played out a goalless draw that had an end-of-season-feel written all over it.
Both sides had their fair share of opportunities, but effort was lacking in the blazing sunshine at Ewood Park.
The main talking point came on 71 minutes when Rovers substitute Jason Roberts was sent off for an elbow on Baggies defender Jonas Olsson.
Blackburn's veteran playmaker Tugay made his final appearance and fittingly picked up the man-of-the-match award.
Dutch defender Andre Ooijer was also playing his last game for the club and the fans gave the two players warm send-offs, particularly the 38-year-old Turkish midfielder, who was serenaded from the kick-off.
Allardyce happy with home form
Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce then gave the Turk his moment in the sun as he took him off with five minutes remaining to receive his plaudits on his 294th appearance from an adoring Ewood Park crowd.
Despite having guaranteed their Premier League status, Rovers looked lively enough early on and chased the game, with Christopher Samba blazing over from the edge of the box and hitting the base of the post minutes later.
Morten Gamst Pederson saw a long range free-kick saved by West Brom goalkeeper Dean Kiely on 20 minutes and Tugay nearly sealed his swansong with a goal, but saw his effort from the edge of the box sail past the goal.
Blackburn's player of the season Stephen Warnock was busy as ever down the left but failed to see any of his crosses find a striker.
