Speculation about Steve Kean's future at Blackburn is getting "worse by the day" admits director of football Shebby Singh
The Rovers boss is widely reported to be close to the sack after he failed to reach Singh's target of 16 points from the first seven games, despite Blackburn, currently in third, having their best ever start in the Championship.
At the start of the season Singh said Kean would be sacked if Rovers lost three games in a row, a statement he later retracted with an apology to the Scot.
But his comments on Tuesday will do little to dampen speculation that Kean is close to being shown the door.
"Unfortunately, the momentum (of the speculation about Kean) built up so fast it was quite difficult to step in and react," Singh told BBC Radio Lancashire.
"We have people heading up different departments whose responsibility it is to step in but unfortunately it escalated at such a fast pace that before you know what happened, it hits you in the face.
"It should not have been allowed to escalate like that but it did and the situation gets worse by the day.
"Financially now it is not a good situation because the fans are staying away. The club needs revenue to survive. I guess with having played seven games now I think it is a situation which is not a very pleasant one and I suppose it is my bosses, the owners of the club (Venky's), who have to make an assessment."
