Anti-Steve Kean banner flown by Blackburn Rovers fans

Steve Kean banner
Kean is under pressure with only one win in 11 league matches this season

Blackburn fans found a way around their club's ban on protests against manager Steve Kean at Ewood Park - by arranging for a plane to fly over the ground, displaying their message.

The club had warned fans not to display banners during the home game against Chelsea, which Blackburn lost 1-0.

Kean claimed not to have noticed the small plane that buzzed above Ewood Park during the first half.

There was also a small post-match protest against the Blackburn boss.

But Kean hailed his team for their showing, saying: "I don't feel let down because I think my players gave it everything.

"We are disappointed not to take anything from the game after creating that amount of chances."
