A mile or so wide of the target
Rovers fans are in something of a kerfuffle today with strong rumours filtering through that Steve Kean is in line for a new contract.
Papers everywhere were reporting last night that a new deal was in place to 'reward' Steve Kean with a new deal that would increase his current rate of pay.
But, Venky's have been out this morning to explain that a new contract has not been agreed... yet.
A spokesperson for Venky's told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'There is no new contract signed yet.'
Nice and simple from the Indian owners but this is hardly likely to appease fans much simply because of the last word in that brief statement.
Yet implies that one is on it's way, yet implies that it's only a matter of time and yet implies that the Rao's have indeed lost what was left of their marbles.
It's a denial, but it's not much of one.
