Rovers Fans To Up The Intensity On Kean

Last updated : 06 January 2012 By Footy Mad - Editor


With the club struggling near the foot of the League, a section of Rovers supporters have demonstrated against manager Steve Kean and owners Venky's at several Ewood Park fixtures this season.

The action was officially postponed for the final two home matches of 2011, although losses in those games against West Brom and Bolton saw many fans continue to vent their anger anyway.

Organisers Glen Mullan and Simon Littler have now released a statement confirming that further protests are planned: "The aim of the protests, as from the start, will be about the removal of Steve Kean as first-team manager, Venky's as owners of the club and now the removal of the board of directors.

"The intensity of the protest will increase substantially.

"As Blackburn Rovers fans we have no choice but to try to ensure we preserve the legacy left by the late Jack Walker.

"While we appreciate that this era is in the past, the failure by Venky's and the current board of directors to build on his legacy leaves fans with very little if anything to cling on to."

Rovers, currently 19th in the table, have a trip to Newcastle in the FA Cup this weekend.
