Moyes disgusted by Kean abuse


Everton manager David Moyes has hit out at the "disgusting" treatment of Blackburn counterpart Steve Kean by his own supporters.

Moyes has revealed he walked out of Rovers' demoralising loss to Bolton at Ewood Park on Tuesday in protest at the abuse Kean was receiving from fans. Blackburn's 2-1 defeat to their fellow strugglers left them bottom of the Barclays Premier League and increased the pressure on Kean and the club's under-fire owners Venky's.

Moyes said: "I walked out at half-time. I couldn't believe the criticism they gave their manager. If they had supported the team as well as they had shouted at their manager I think the team might have got a result in the game. I was disgusted with how football supporters treated Steve."
