Daily Mail.

Rovers have apologised for a false allegation levelled in Allardyce’s direction by Kean, who said that the West Ham manager’s sacking in 2010 was the result of his “crooked” nature as a man.

Kean was caught unaware as he spoke to fans in a bar. The fans captured footage of the whole conversation which was posted, and still available to view, on YouTube.

A club statement read: “During the summer of 2011, Mr Steve Kean was this Club’s manager and accompanied the players of Blackburn Rovers on a pre-season tour of the Far East.

“Whilst in Hong Kong, Mr Kean was in a bar and falsely alleged that Sam Allardyce, our previous manager, was sacked by us because he was a crook.

“This is completely false and we apologise to Mr Allardyce for the embarrassment and distress caused to him by Mr Kean.”
