Republic of Ireland defender Shane Duffy had a night to forget in a Blackburn Rovers shirt as a painful run for club and country continued.

The 24-year-old reportedly turned down a new contract offer from Rovers this week.

He was last month said to be a Celtic target and might benefit from a change of scenery after an agonising downturn in his on-pitch fortunes.

Duffy was sent off for Ireland against France at the last-16 stage of Euro 2016 in June, and on Saturday netted an own goal in Blackburn's Sky Bet Championship derby defeat at Wigan.

On Wednesday at Cardiff he netted two own goals in the first 20 minutes to leave Blackburn 2-0 behind.

Danny Graham got the visitors back into the game with 13 minutes to go but Duffy's nightmare continued in injury time when he walked for a second yellow.
