Steve Bruce talking about Rolando Aarons impressing and scoring on Tuesday night:
“Rolando has had a real big impact on us and it capped off a memorable night for him.
“I thought he was terrific, in particular in the second half.
“His career seemed to have fallen off the cliff a little bit.
“So you blow him a little bit of confidence, put an arm around his shoulder, remind him what a good player he was.
“Which I remember when he first burst onto the scene.
“I’m delighted because he’s given us something we haven’t got, he has got a little trick, he’s quick, and he’s energetic and young.
“I’m delighted for him because he’s a really, really good kid.
“All this nonsense written about him, I have not seen it.
“He has done great since he walked through the door.”
