Steve Kean's troubled reign as Blackburn manager has come to an end as he resigned from his role, saying in a statement that he had been "forced" out and that his position had become "untenable".
The Scot has been a much-derided figure at Ewood Park for the duration of his near two-year spell in charge, with the low point being relegation from the Barclays Premier League in May.
But despite poor results on the pitch, Kean retained the backing of the club's owners, Venky's - much to the fury of supporters who regularly protested against him.
