Blackburn have issued an apology to former manager Sam Allardyce over false allegations made against the West Ham boss by his Ewood Park predecessor Steve Kean.

During Rovers' 2011 pre-season tour of the Far East, Kean was filmed talking to fans and making allegations about Allardyce. The video was posted on YouTube. Kean served under Allardyce as first-team coach before the taking over in the wake of the 58-year-old's surprise sacking in December 2010.

Allardyce initiated legal proceedings against Kean and Blackburn over the remarks and reached an out-of-court settlement last week. On Tuesday, Rovers issued a statement on their official website under the headline "Sam Allardyce: An apology".
