Player Profile

Posted 2nd February 2016 at 03:43 pm

Jordan Rhodes started his career as youngster with Ipswich Town after his dad Andy joined the club as a goalkeeping coach. He was prolific scorer in their youth and reserve team.

As an 18-year-old Rhodes became the youngest Brentford player in history to score a hat-trick after he scored three goals in 29 minutes at Shrewsbury in January 2009 while on loan with the Bees.

Jordan left Ipswich in the summer of 2009 and swiftly established himself at Huddersfield, scoring six goals in his first six games, including one on his debut for the club.

In 2011/12 he opened the season with 13 goals in 13 games and became the first Huddersfield player since the 1920s to score back-to-back hat-tricks. He scored four in a game at Sheffield Wednesday and netted five in a 6-0 win against Wycombe, equalling a record dating back to the 1930s.

Despite being born in England, Rhodes qualified for Scotland and made his debut in November 2011. He has since scored three times in 13 appearances for his country.

Jordan was named League One Player of the Year in 2011/12 and, in a season that saw him score six hat-tricks, he netted 40 goals in total throughout the campaign.

Rhodes signed for Blackburn in August 2012 for £8m and scored 28 goals during his first season with the club as he was named Player Of The Year. 

The striker joined Boro on Deadline Day in January 2016. Rhodes scored his first Boro goal, a late leveller against MK Dons, just over a week later - the first of six league goals that would help fire Boro to promotion to the Premier League.
