Kean puts on a brave face

Kean puts on a brave face

Rovers manager Steve Kean's reputation for being something of a positive thinker isn't going to go away too quickly.

The boys fell to their second defeat in as many games with a sloppy 3-1 defeat to Villa at the weekend.

But Kean has tried to re-assure fans that players that have been out are on their way back and new faces are in the process of being added.

'I can understand why they might be concerned but I would say to them that we're just trying to get as many bodies back fit as we can and get some fresh faces into the squad' Kean told Sky Sports.

'We've got a very good spirit here, which we showed last season, and once we assemble a full squad we'll be fine.

'When I spoke to them at half-time, I told them not to be too expansive and to keep our shape and we did that in starting the second half really well and we got the goal.

'It was all us after that and Villa were on the back foot. But then came their third goal which on another day may have been flagged offside.

There's a career somewhere as a motivational speaker for our Scottish manager.

I think a Guardian journo said it best about Kean - 'Deluded or in denial' ! - I'm not sure myself... maybe a bit of both! And to think we were all moaning about Big Sam's moans after every game, even if we won. Now we've got Mr.Positive, we're sick of that too!

I'm still undecided whether he is one of three things; 1) being hung out to dry 2) Right and that when players come back and new players join and gel we will be a good side or 3) Deluded and out of his depth... I'm pinning hopes on the second one at the moment :)
