'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kean in drink driving charge

The first in a double header of bad news this morning I am sad to say.

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has been charged with drink driving last night after failing a breath test just hours after his side's draw against Manchester United.

Our Scottish manager was stopped by officers from Cheshire Police while travelling along the M6 in his Mercedes following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Ewood Park.

He provided a positive breath test and was subsequently charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

He was bailed to appear at court next month but will not be prevented from taking his seat for Rovers' crunch clash with Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

A spokesman for Cheshire police is quoted in the Lancashire Telegraph as saying - 'At 8.50pm on Saturday 14 May, Cheshire officers stopped a Mercedes car on the M6 southbound carriageway, between Junction 19 and 18. 'The driver, a 43-year-old man, provided a positive breath test.

'He was subsequently charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and bailed to appear at Crewe magistrates' court on June 7.'

Just as you were getting into some sort of credit hey Steve?!

Anyone know how far over he was? I suspect he shared a bottle with Fergie!

What a Muppet! Can he not afford a taxi on his wages??

perhaps he thought he could get 12 points and push rovers towards the europa league places

Sums him up perfectly, like FN1 I have no time for drink drivers, he should be locked up for drink driving, with an extra 25 years for crimes against football.

I think we are all waiting with baited breath for Kean's comments...
Mikey Delap
Stupid stupid stupid. Just as he starts to do one or two decent things. Idiot.
rossp2112
I wonder if Fergie got him sloshed and told his 'pal' Big Sam he was driving home so he could grass him up? lol. He might actually have more realistic comments for a change instead of trying to dress things up like he does when we've played like a pub side.
ITSALLROVER
He's been drunk since the day he got Big Sam out.
