Rovers: No new Kean deal

BY foxsports • November 11, 2011

Rovers are currently in the top-flight relegation zone after a miserable start to the season which has seen them claim just six points from 11 games. Kean, whose appointment as successor to Sam Allardyce in December last year was not met with universal approval, has been under severe scrutiny this season. Ewood Park owners Venky's turned to the 44-year-old after they showed Allardyce the door and have always backed the Scot through some testing times this term. Protests from sections of the club's supporters have become commonplace at home matches this season, with Rovers having lost five of their six in front of their own fans. Kean insists he is paying no attention to the dissenting voices and has always thanked the supporters who have stuck behind his players during their recent rocky patch. Reports emerged earlier this week that Venky's had handed their boss a new and improved contract despite their perilous position and the off-field unrest. But a Venky's spokesman told the Lancashire Telegraph: "There is no new contract signed yet."
