Singh apology over Kean ultimatum
Blackburn global advisor Shebby Singh has apologised for public comments he made about manager Steve Kean and midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen.
Speaking at a meeting organised by the Blackburn Rovers Action Group on Saturday, Singh stated under-fire manager Kean would be dismissed if he lost three consecutive npower Championship games early in the season and likened long-serving wideman Pedersen to a "pensioner".
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I would like to extend an apology to Steve Kean because some things were said on Saturday. I think they would have hurt Steve Kean's feelings and, for that, I sincerely apologise.
"Some things are said in jest that don't come across like that when repeated, but I am not making excuses.
"I apologise for hurting any feelings. I would also like to apologise to Morten Gamst Pedersen for what was said. There are no excuses and Morten is a great character.
"My blunt honesty also sometimes upsets people and sometimes rubs people up the wrong way. I am making efforts to bring the club back to the fans and, in trying to do that, I have gone too far. I am trying to find the middle ground."
