Blackburn fans are harming their own team with their "vicious" attacks on manager Steve Kean, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has claimed.

Kean was subjected to a torrent of abuse from the stands when Rovers lost at home to Bolton on Tuesday.

Pardew, who worked with Kean at Reading, said: "If they want to carry on like they are doing, all they are going to do is harm their own team. I can't see the logic in that."
