The first casualty of Blackburn’s relegation from the Championship, a second relegation in the Venky’s reign, was Paul Senior. The director of football and operations tendered his resignation in the aftermath of Rovers dropping into League 1.

A statement on the Official Website confirmed his exit.

It read: ‘Paul Senior has today resigned from his role as director of football and operations. The club would like to thank Paul for his efforts and wish him well in his future endeavours.’

Adding: ‘Paul would like to go on record by wishing Tony Mowbray, the club’s loyal and hard-working staff and fantastic fans the very best good fortune forward.’

Senior, who was only 123 days into his job at Ewood Park, will not be following Blackburn into League 1, a level we’ll be playing at for the first time since 1980, as the Rovers fall from grace of being topflight champions to League 1 was complete. Since this title success we have of course dropped out of the Premier League, returned and been relegated again, the first of the two relegations under the current owners.

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray, backed to continue in his role, has only previously had contact with Senior since his appointment in February.
