Kean heartened by support from managers

Blackburn boss Steve Kean says messages of support received from other managers in the Premier League are helping him endure criticism from his own club's fans.

Sir Alex Ferguson and Harry Redknapp were among those coming out in support of the Rovers boss after Kean was subjected to sustained barracking during Tuesday's 2-1 defeat by Bolton.

Blackburn now face a tough festive period, travelling to Liverpool on Boxing Day and facing Manchester United on 31 December at Old Trafford.
