Rovers quiet on Kean rumours

Blackburn will not be releasing an official statement in relation to Steve Kean's managerial future at Ewood Park.

Rovers suffered their first home defeat of the season in a 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough on Friday, prompting speculation that the club's owners were negotiating Kean's replacement as manager.

The owners' talks are expected to continue, but operations director Paul Agnew has said the club will not be responding to media speculation at this time.
