Rovers say sorry to Allardyce

Published Add your comment

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".
