Blackburn fans plan more protests to force the board to sack manager Steve Kean

The club's first-team squad are on tour in India and their owners' unequivocal support for the Scot has not appeased disgruntled fans who are still demanding his removal

Blackburn Rovers fans are planning more protests designed to force the club’s board to sack manager Steve Kean following the team's poor start to the season.

Kean’s side have won only once in their opening seven games, leaving Blackburn sit 19th in the Premier League table.

Blackburn beat Indian side Pune FC 3-0 on Friday in their owners' homeland, but tensions are still brewing at home.

Glen Mullan, one of the organisers of the upcoming protests, was quoted as saying by BBC Sport: "Over the last week or so, myself and the fellow organisers of the recent protests have been working hard on what we should do next following the ridiculous comments coming out of the club.

"The numbers are expected to be much larger than the previous march as more and more supporters have joined the protest campaign."
