Kean rough translation - Diouf can go

El Hadji Diouf's stay at Ewood Park looks to be drawing to an end after Steve Kean told he player that he will not be a starter in his future plans for the club.

Diouf moved to Rangers on loan in January after the Rovers boss told the Senegalese winger that Junior Hoilett was to be given a long run in the first team.

But with Diouf set to return to the club in due course an awkward conversation is on the horizon and it looks as if Kean will be telling EHD in a roundabout way that he is available to maybe, go and find a way to sling his hook.

Kean told the Lancaashire Telegraph - "What has helped Martin and Junior, no disrespect to Dioufy, is the fact such an established player is not at the club anymore. When he was there and playing either left or right wing, the other guys knew they probably were not going to play.

"I took the decision to let Dioufy go and experience a new challenge at Glasgow Rangers and that then allowed both of these lads to express themselves and enjoy a run for Rovers.

"I think they have been all the better for that.

"He has got a year left and I will talk to him when he comes back. He is going to find himself a little bit further down the pecking order in terms of starting in the team.

"I don`t know if that is going to suit Dioufy. I will be honest with him. I will tell him, 'You are not going to start ahead of Martin or Junior or Brett`. If he decides that is not going to be for him then we will see what we can sort out."

I would personally want to hold onto him but I can see with those players in front of him that he won't hang around.

He's on a lot of money and he's not going to play. Easy decision. If we can find someone who'll have him.

Always on the cards he would go once being allowed to leave on loan, Just hope we can get some sort of fee for him

Don't see any reason whatsoever to freeze him out. He was arguably our best player in the early stages of last season. How can Kean state he won't play ahead of three other players without giving him a chance and watching him in training? Not encouraging at all for Diouffy... Looks like he's being shown the door.

I agree with ITSALLROVER

Wouldn't be too unhappy to see Diouf leave, however, we've got to go about it the right way. I can see him happily seeing out the final year of his contract picking up decent money now doing next to nothing.
