Blackburn director gives Steve Kean vote of no confidence
Blackburn Rovers have enjoyed a strong start to the Championship season, although Friday’s defeat at home to Middlesbrough seems to have moved Steve Kean to the brink of being sacked at Ewood Park.

Rovers sit third in the table after accruing 14 points from their first seven matches although it doesn’t appear to have appeased owners Venky’s, with director of football Shebby Singh admitting that Kean’s position “gets worse by the day”.
“Unfortunately, the momentum [of the speculation about Kean] built up so fast it was quite difficult to step in and react,” Singh said. “We have people heading up different departments whose responsibility it is to step in but unfortunately it escalated at such a fast pace that before you know what happened, it hits you in the face.
“It should not have been allowed to escalate like that but it did and the situation gets worse by the day. Financially now it is not a good situation because the fans are staying away. The club needs revenue to survive.
“I guess with having played seven games now I think it is a situation which is not a very pleasant one and I suppose it is my bosses, the owners of the club [Venky’s], who have to make an assessment.”
