Steve Kean's job is safe, Blackburn's director of football Shebby Singh said

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has been assured his job is safe despite the club's relegation.

Rovers' new director of football Shebby Singh insists the Scot will remain in charge at Ewood Park and will be provided with funds to bring in new players in an attempt to make a quick return to the top flight.

"Steve has been in this sort of situation before in the Championship when he was at Fulham and he got them promoted," Singh told Sky Sports News.

"We have got to evaluate situations as they come along rather than set a certain standard and say 'you have failed to meet that'.

"While not lowering our standards we need to look at the other qualities that Steve has got. Everybody starts with a clean slate but having said that everybody is on trial.

"As far as I am aware and as far as I know there are funds available to bring in the right sort of characters and the players with the right sort of characteristics for the team."
