Former boss considers legal move
Sam Allardyce is considering legal action against his Blackburn successor Steve Kean over defamatory remarks he made about him.
Kean's rant was caught on a mobile video phone as he addressed fans in a bar in Hong Kong during Rovers' pre-season tour last summer.
The four-minute long footage includes a segment where the Scot called Allardyce a "crook" which has now prompted the West Ham supremo to seek advice from experts on a possible legal comeback in the courts.
The video was posted on YouTube on Monday evening by a Rovers fan ahead of Kean's planned talks with the club's matriarch Mrs Desai in India to discuss his and Rovers' future following their relegation from the Premier League.
The Blackburn boss has not yet commented on the matter but the outburst won't do anything to increase his popularity with the Rovers' faithful, or those who thought Allardyce's sacking was wrong in the first place.
