Mark Hughes pulled off "a great coup" when he persuaded Benni McCarthy to join Blackburn.

That is the verdict of former England and Rovers striker Alan Shearer, who says Hughes deserves to be applauded for securing the South African´s signature.

"I am surprised other teams did not have a pop at McCarthy," said the former Newcastle star. "He has always been a top scorer and it was a great coup for Mark Hughes to get him."
