Kean Remains Bullish Despite 3rd Blackburn Protest

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean has vowed to stay and and claims his players will “grind through” their current poor form which has seen them slip to the bottom of the Barclays Premier League following their 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

Rovers have picked up just five points from nine Premier League games so far this season and the pressure is mounting on Kean, who needs to see his side start to pick up points, and fast, now that the Blackburn faithful have turned on him.

Kean, for the third successive home game, was the target of a protest by the club’s supporters.

Blackburn fans made their unhappiness known to Kean and the Venky’s owners both prior kick-off and after the final whistle, with ‘Kean Out’ banners clearly on display to coincide with the chanting for the Scot to be sacked by the board.

The 44-year-old remains bullish, though, stressing that the crowd had given their backing to the players during the game, praising his side’s efforts and insisting that Rovers will soon start to turn their fortunes around.

Blackburn were undone by two goals from Rafael van der Vaart, who not opened the scoring in the 15th minute, but then went on to pile misery on Rovers, slotting home a second after the break.

Blackburn pressed Spurs in search of a second equaliser but substitute Yakubu was unable to apply the finishing touch when the chances that came his way.

On the protests which followed, Kean said: “I don’t know if it is a large section of the crowd, and to be fair, I’m not really paying any attention to anybody who is staying behind.

“I’m interested in my players and what they give me, and they give me everything every single day.”

Got something to say?
