Steve Kean resigns

Steve Kean has tonight resigned as manager of Blackburn Rovers.

He has issued a statement through his lawyers tonight stating that he has been forced to resign.Kean said: "For reasons that I cannot discuss on legal advice, it is with deep regret, given my hard work and service for the club for a number of years, that I have been forced to resign as manager of Blackburn Rovers Football Club with immediate effect, due to my position as team manager becoming untenable.

"I wish to thank all the players and coaching staff for their great support and the majority of the fans, who now see their club heading towards an automatic promotion position back to the Premiership. I wish the club all the very best for the future."

More on it as we get it, till then, party anyone?

OH THANK GOD! Now I can get back to being involved with the club I've loved since I don't know when. He's obviously been paid off big time (hence the "legal issues"), but I just don't care. He's gone. I'm having a beer. And then another one. Hurrah!

personally i think you should all be ashamed of yourselves.the treatment dished out to him has been disgraceful.he has given the job his all,and made top signings.one defeat and sitting third in the table,what more do you want?.and last week,must have been the first time in the history of english football,where a team top of the league were shouting for their managers head.

Pault50, once again an outside fan hasn't a clue about what's actually gone on at the club, we're all a bit fed up trying to expain to idiots who don't listen. Unless you actually follow rovers? You can't be a supporter otherwise you'd know, if we just look at the home games this season we have been battered each time (not just poor!) and we were saved by individual player quality. Anyway, great he's gone but he's made one final stab to the gut by resigning the day before the match. I'd hope an experienced manager comes in but wouldn't blame them if they didn't, and seriously hope Mick McCarthy isn't appointed! Most importantly, I hearby callout the many fans who said they'd be back once he's gone. I call your bluff because I actually believe many stay away because it's championship football. Enough now, support your club and get back to Ewood.

yes i admit im an outside fan looking in.im also pretty well clued up on football.evn my teenage daughters started feeling sorry for kean last season due to his treatment by the fans,so weve followed the rovers story in great detail.this guy came out with a positive attitude,in every single interview he ever gave.he never once spoke negative towards anything.this season he has signed players of the top pedigree..and has still been treated like a dog.perhaps if you had given him a chance this season, he could have proved to you all that he was the man to get you promoted. well i hope he gets the chance to prove you all wrong with a new club very soon,whether it be in the championship or league one or two.good luck steve kean,you deserve it.

Hopefully he gets that chance at the club you support Pault. Seriously if you feel sorry for Kean then you really aren't a football fan. Read up on how he got the job, his agents involvement with the club. We signed his agents son ffs. He is also a liar (new contract, Salgado, Nelsen, Samba and many more situations where he needlessly lied.) He took a mid table and stable PL team nearly relegated them (no protests) then the season after he did relegate them and you think he should be given time? a chance? What do you call the 74 games he had in charge at this great club? A warm up? a prelude? Get a grip pal. Seriously the man is inept and incompentent. I'm delighted he has gone.
