Blackburn's owners start the hunt for a new manager after expressing their disappointment at Steve Kean's resignation on Friday night.

In a statement released through his lawyers, Kean confirmed he had called time on his chequered 21-month reign at Ewood Park, saying he had been "forced" to step down and that his position had become "untenable".

The 44-year-old Scot has been a much-derided figure ever since taking over from Sam Allardyce in December 2010, with the club's supporters baffled as to how he retained the unwavering support of the club's owners, the Venky's, despite poor on-field form which culminated in Rovers falling out of the Barclays Premier League in May.
