Blackburn director of football Shebby Singh has admitted the situation surrounding manager Steve Kean's future at the club "gets worse by the day".
The Rovers boss faces the axe after he failed to reach Singh's target of 16 points from the first seven games, despite Blackburn having their best ever start in the npower Championship. They are currently in third place on14 points, following their relegation from the Barclays Premier League last season.
Singh told BBC Radio Lancashire: "Unfortunately, the momentum [of the speculation about Kean] built up so fast it was quite difficult to step in and react. We have people heading up different departments whose responsibility it is to step in but unfortunately it escalated at such a fast pace that before you know what happened, it hits you in the face."
