Sam Allardyce has admitted he is disappointed by the comments allegedly made about him by Blackburn boss Steve Kean, which emerged this week.
The Scot has become the centre of an internet storm after video footage of him appearing to making disparaging remarks about Rovers predecessor Allardyce was published by a fans' action group.
West Ham boss Allardyce, who is taking legal action against his former assistant, said: "It's disappointing but it's in the hands of my lawyers and they are taking the action that is appropriate under the law of the land."
