Allardyce taking legal action against Kean

Former Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is taking legal action against the current manager Steve Kean after a video was released on You Tube late last night that showing Kean getting stuck into the man he used to work under.

THAT video (which we've all seen now) shows the Scot making insinuations as to why Big Sam lost his Rovers, which were different to why we were told in the first place, by calling him a crook and as a result Allardyce has asked his lawyer to serve legal papers.

Allardyce is also considering taking legal action against his former employers in Rovers.

Try and bullshit your way out of this one Steven...

Karma is a bitch, Mr Kean!! i hope this opens up the whole can of worms and all the swindlers involved in exploiting our club get exposed for what they truly are.

Yeah... If I were Steve Kean I'd be really concerned. After all, wasn't it a certain ex-Bolton manager who, the morning after a certain Panorama programme (about bungs) which highlighted him in a ...ahem....less than flattering way, told assembled hacks at his garden gate, that he was going to bring down the full force of the law upon the BBC, and his lawyers were being instructed as he spoke. Hmmm.....now remind me, what happened there then? Did I miss him taking Auntie to the cleaners? Always puzzled me that one. By the way, I love the idea of character deformation. A bit like something between defamation and character assassination.

LordJohnny - Have you seen the video? Because if you had I'd be worried if I was Steve Kean!

Difference is Kean has committed slander, and possibly broken a clause in Sam's contract of dismissal, which would more than likely hold a confidentiality clause which quietens Sam as well as blackburn rovers and their employees.

Why should Steve Kean be worried whether I've seen the video or not?
