Black to be confirmed as Rovers assistant boss

Rovers are set to acquire their new assistant manager today with the hiring of Eric Black to be announced at a press conference this afternoon.

Black comes with a good pedigree having been around the block more than once in his days and will provide experience in the role vacated by the undertaker look-a-like Paul Clement a few weeks back.

The BBC are reporting - 'Eric Black will be confirmed as Steve Kean's new assistant head coach at Blackburn at a press conference on Thursday.

Black, who worked with Steve Bruce at Sunderland, replaces Paul Clement who left Ewood Park to join Paris Saint-Germain last week.

The 48-year-old previously held a similar position at Celtic and Birmingham City, again with Bruce.'

Certainly not as romantic an appointment as a Colin Hendry or a Tugay would have been but certainly a more well rounded one.

It looks like he's stabbing Bruce in the back with an invisible blade...!

Fair enough appointment. Sensible enough. Wonder how long he'll hang around?
