Rovers stalwart Tony Parkes has been quick to criticise Venky’s after a TV interview yesterday shed light on the situation involving manager Steve Kean.

Venkatesh Rao was on Sky Sports News yesterday morning proclaiming that Venky’s were hurting over the relegation of Blackburn and that no decision would be made over the future of (useless) manager Steve Kean until next month.

This has drawn criticism from the man affectionately known as Mr Blackburn who worked at the club in numerous capacities for 35 years.

Tony Parkes told Sky Sports – ‘I just can’t believe that they haven’t made a decision.’

‘Steve [Kean] is in limbo and really needs to know whether he will be manager of the club and whether he has got players to sell and players to get in. It’s a big job and if you miss quite a few weeks some of your playing targets might have gone.’

‘I have very little confidence in the owners as they know very little about football.

‘When they came in 16 months ago, they got rid of people who knew something about football and could have helped them.

‘From that moment on, there has been a lot of distrust in the owners. They are hiding away and letting Steve Kean take all the flak and, for me, they are not the right people to be running Blackburn.’

The failings of the current owners is further highlighted with a quick glance back to the Jack Walker days but Parkes has called for the fans to stick together if the owner and manager are to be here come the start of next season.

An uneasy harmony if you will.

Parkes continued – ‘Jack was in it for the right reasons; he was a Blackburn man, he built the academy and Ewood Park and he was in a class of his own, these owners are the opposite and I cannot see where Blackburn are going to go.

‘They are talking about buying players but we have heard all this before. They came in with all guns blazing with mentions of Diego Maradona, David Beckham and Ronaldinho.

‘But if they are going to stay there is only one way forward: the fans have to stick behind the owners and also the manager.

‘It is going to be difficult because the fans really want change but we can’t go through what we had last year, with Steve Kean being booed for 90 minutes every home game. It got ridiculous at times.’
