Adebayor celebrated the goal by taking a swipe at the club where he spent three years.
"At Arsenal the fans would boo me, so it's nice to be at a club were the fans love me," he said. "The stick wasn't fair."
Very classy. Ade could not just be happy scoring his debut goal. He better keep scoring goals otherwise the welcome mat at City might disappear too.
As for City, beyond the Adebayor flash and the dependable Steven Ireland, there was little else noteworthy. It was Shay Given and the inability of Rovers to finish their chances that enabled a win. So yes, it was a win on Hughes return to Ewood Park but there were quite a few wrinkles especially on defense.
