Leon Best: 'Why I Chose Rovers Ahead Of Celtic'

08 July 2012 12:15
Leon Best has said that it was due to Steve Kean that he has moved to Blackburn Rovers - rather than Celtic - from Newcastle United.

Kean had a difficult season last campaign, with many Rovers supporters predicting relegation if the Board stuck with the manager.

And guess what . they were right!

Rovers have challenged Celtic all summer to sign the Newcastle United striker, but Best says he fancies the English Championship . rather than the one-team SPL.

Best who played under Kean at Coventry City told Sky Sports: "He worked a lot with me at Coventry. He did extra bits with me that he didn't need to, any time I wanted to do shooting.

"His training gets the players going. You want to be part of it and that's a massive thing.

"I love getting up in the morning and looking forward to training and with Steve I'll definitely be doing that."
