Hated as much as he is by the Rovers faithful, you’d think that he would take this opportunity to apologise for the bullshit and move on gracefully. But no, Kean is determined to stay on as manager next season.
Rovers didn’t even leave the top flight with a fight, the last few weeks have been have been an anguish to watch and the game at Tottenham must have proved to even the biggest die-hard fan that Kean is far out of his depth managing a football club.
But, in his usual arrogant way, he is now insisting that he is the man to bring Blackburn back to the top flight at the first time of asking.
He said: "I am not going to walk away. We're devastated but we'll live to fight another day.
"I will sit down with the owners and discuss a plan on how to assemble a squad to help us bounce back up straight away.
"We need to try to keep the majority of the squad together and add one or two experienced players that can help us.
"I am a big believer in my own ability and a big believer in the guys I have got in the dressing room.
"I have spoken to each and every one of them and they are devastated but I can't fault their commitment.
"I am convinced we can go on and build a side that can move us forward again - but this is a massive setback."
