It’s been quite a week for 36 year old Eidur Gudjohnsen, goals for Bolton and Iceland plus the arrival of a new baby.

Having had a number of good weeks during his career so far, this last seven days has been an interesting period for the striker as he made his scoring return to international action for Iceland in their European Qualifier against Kazakhstan, celebrated the birth of a baby and then got us the late point in the game against Blackpool.

In quotes carried by the Official Site following the game at the weekend, he explained.

‘I wasn`t sure if it was my goal to be honest. But, to have equalised late on is nice, given how many goals have gone against us recently. Although we created chances, I think all in all we have to perform better. The positive is that we kept going right until the end. When you keep going and keep believing you get your rewards. It`s a day of mixed emotions really.’

Gudjohnsen goes on to say that he felt manager Neil Lennon experimented towards the end of the game in the hope of sparking something given how the day was going for us, and although you don’t often see four forwards on the pitch, he felt it paid off for us even though we were obviously slightly more open at back.

‘I think our manager gambled towards the end, when we had four forwards on the pitch. It left us a little bit open at times, but the decision paid off.’

As for his international return, and a goal scoring one at that he added.

‘It was great to be back with Iceland earlier in the week and to start the game. After being away from the team for a while to come back and score on my return was pleasing. On a personal level, my family and I also celebrated the birth of our baby this week. That has brought a lot of joy to my family.’

Joy and sleepless nights!

Having been clubless for the first half of the season before coming into Bolton in December, he also said that he’s hoping he’s done enough to earn himself a new deal this summer with him only being on a short term contract.

‘I want to carry on playing whilst I`m feeling good. I can`t see myself retiring in the near future, but we`ll see how that goes. The main thing now is to finish the season as strong as I can, and as strong as the team can.’
