Blackburn's co-owner has insisted the club is not for sale despite their relegation from the Premier League.

Venkatesh Rao says Indian poultry giants Venky's are with Blackburn for the long-term. He also insisted deputy chief executive Paul Hunt has left the club as a cost-cutting measure rather than being sacked over a leaked letter.

Asked if Venky's wanted to keep Blackburn in the long-term, Rao told the Times of India: "Yes, it is a company of ours and there is nothing whatsoever in [the speculation]. These allegations are not correct."
