Bishop wants fans to back under-fire Kean
Under-fire Steve Kean has received a Christmas message of support from the Bishop of Blackburn, who urged fans to get behind their beleaguered man in the hotseat as the club try to move off the bottom of the Premier League.
Right Reverend Nicholas Reade called on supporters to show some compassion ahead of a tough Boxing Day fixture against Liverpool. "I would say please, always remember the human being, always remember that he's part of a family -- that other people will be suffering because people have got him in their sights," the bishop told the BBC.
