Norwich fans react on Twitter to former Rangers defender Steven Whittaker's performance

Norwich City defender Steven Whittaker impressed fans during the club's 2-1 win over Blackburn.

Norwich secured an impressive away win over Blackburn, to remain in the play-off spots in the Championship.

New manager Alex Neil has turned the club's form around, and they have now won their last five matches in a row.

A stunning goal from Bradley Johnson gave them the win, taking advantage of a clever pass from defender Steven Whittaker.

Whittaker not only provided the assist, but he created four goalscoring opportunities during the game, eager to get forward, even if just one of his seven crosses found a teammate.

The defender also made five tackles, more than the rest of the Norwich defence combined, while his two interceptions was the joint highest among players in the back four, matched by Martin Olsson.

The 30-year-old now has two assists in his last two games, and his form at right-back is a major plus for the Canaries, as they head into a crucial East Anglian derby at the weekend, with Norwich and Ipswich fifth and third in the table.

Whittaker has been with Norwich since 2012, when he left Rangers on a free transfer after the club after 140 starts for them, when the club lost their top flight status in Scotland.

He remains a Scotland international, with 27 caps to his name, but his form for Norwich has not always been at the level required over the course of the season. Even against Blackburn he could have done better for their goal, with a lack of concentration evident.
