Rovers fans protest to get Kean dumped
STEVE KEAN will face fresh calls to be sacked as Blackburn boss with a major protest planned to push through his Ewood Park exit.
Kean’s future is in doubt with Rovers stranded rock bottom of the Premier League with just one point from four games.
And disgruntled fans will only pile the pressure on Kean, who has won just six of his 27 league games, after Saturday’s home clash with Arsenal.
Only days after the Blackburn faithful sent an open letter to the club’s owners Venky’s calling on them to replace Kean, they are now stepping up their bid to end his nine-month reign in charge.
A pre-match march to the ground comes after supporters launched an online petition asking for signatures to remove the under-fire Scot.
Glen Mullan, who has helped organise the demonstration, said: “There is a dossier being put together by supporters and a march is planned for before the Arsenal game.
“The numbers look like hitting 1,000 so the fans are keen to have Steve Kean removed.
“It’s going to be a peaceful march but we want to make our point. It is about time the owners listened to us.
“We want someone who is experienced and can relate to the fans.” Kean has never won over the Rovers faithful after being promoted from first-team coach to replace Sam Allardyce last December.
He kept them up by the skin of their teeth on the final day last season and their sluggish start has only increased the terrace unrest.
Many fans would like to see Kean replaced by former Rovers favourite Mark Hughes, who is currently out of work.
