Football: WOLVES NEWS - Mulgrew puts accent on success.

CHARLIE Mulgrew is hoping the mirroring of his ambitions and that of Wolves will make his move from Celtic an unqualified success. The 21-year-old Glaswegian made a mixed debut at Leeds last weekend, initially looking composed and comfortable before flagging just before half-time and, having been booked for a late tackle, finding himself substituted before the break.

But boss Mick McCarthy has high hopes of the versatile defender, who is looking forward to battling for a spot in the Wolves back-line.

"Trying to be involved in the first team here is the main motivation behind my move because it wasn't going to work at Celtic," said Mulgrew.

"This is a great club for me to start my career in England and I'm looking forward to it.

"Wolves are a big club with great training facilities who are wanting to move on to better things and get into the Premiership.

"As a young player I'm looking to improve as well so hopefully it will work out together and we will move onwards and upwards."

Leaving his native Scotland for the first time was clearly a big step for the confident Mulgrew, but he admits the dulcet tones of former Celtic team-mate Jackie McNamara soon made him feel welcome.

"It's a bit hard for me because my family are all up in Scotland but I needed to do what's best for my football," he added.

"I met Jackie down here just before I signed and he talked very positively about the club and the place. It was good to see a familiar face and hear a Scottish accent!"
