Leeds United-owned Marcus Antonsson has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at making his debut for Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.
Antonsson joined League One club Blackburn on a season-long loan deal from Championship outfit Leeds United in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old striker made his debut for Rovers on Saturday afternoon, playing in their 1-0 victory over Bradford away from home in League One.
The Swede did not start the match at the Northern Commercials Stadium, but he came on as a substitute in the 79th minute.
Antonsson has taken to Twitter to express his delight at making his debut for Rovers, with Leeds and Blackburn fans responding to his message on the social networking site.

Antonsson joined Leeds from Swedish club Kalmar FF in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Lancashire Telegraph to be in the region of £2 million.
The Swedish striker arrived at Elland Road with a good reputation, but he was able to make only six starts in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign, scoring just one goal in the process.
