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

Has anybody seen El Hadji Diouf?

Rovers winger El Hadji Diouf has apparently shown where his future lies by not reporting in for training for the last week!

Rovers flew out to Austria last week for pre-season training and landed back on Monday and even took on Oldham in a friendly yesterday... all without want away winger Diouf.

Diouf was turfed out on loan to Rangers in January and was told in no uncertain terms by boss Steve Kean that he was no longer required at Ewood Park.

This has unsettled Diouf who has now be come harder to spot than Vince Grella at Brockhall.

The club have been trying to contact Diouf to find out his whereabouts but their calls so far remain unanswered!

A Rovers source told the Daily Telegraph - 'We can't find him. Nobody knows where he is.'

If there was any doubt as to where the Senegalese star's Rovers future holds it certainly isn't in Rovers colours next season after this debacle.

He could at least stay professional couldn't he? He's sealed his fate with this!

to be fair i think we are in the wrong. he was playing well and put in some solid performances and out of the blue sam is sacked and we tell him hes no longer wanted. what would you do if your boss told you he didnt want you at work?

Find a new boss would be better, he don't get any money this way, but maybe he has enough...cheers

I genuinely presumed he'd follow bfs

What would I do if my boss said I wasn't wanted? I'd get a new job. Sorry, I know that a lot of fans rate him as a player, but for me his attitude has always been off and I don't think that what he produces for the team makes the rest of it okay. And this is typical of him. Most players would get their head down and train so hard they'd either (a) convince the boss that he's convinced or (b) get a move away. With Olsson and (hopefully) Hoilett bombing down the wings we don't need him anyway.
