Harry Redknapp has criticised the fans who subjected Steve Kean to "horrific" abuse during Blackburn's 2-1 defeat against Bolton on Tuesday night.

Kean's future at Ewood Park was plunged into further doubt as his team dropped to the foot of the Barclays Premier League with the loss against their fellow strugglers at Ewood Park. Rovers fans unfurled 'Kean out' banners and chanted for the Scot's removal during the match, but Kean insisted after the game that he would not resign.

Redknapp was taken aback by the fierce nature of the criticism and thinks the Blackburn supporters went over the top. The Tottenham boss said: "I have never seen it like that. That is horrific to stand and take that."
