Allardyce demands Blackburn players ignore takeover rumours

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce wants his players to forget about takeover speculation.

Talk of a new owner and a sizeable transfer kitty has been welcomed by Rovers players.

But Allardyce told the Lancashire Telegraph: "It can't help but distract you when you are talking about someone buying your football club. There is always slight apprehension about them.

"It is a difficult period and a difficult transition for everyone to get to grips with. Coming towards the end of the window made it a bigger distraction than it needed to be.

"We have to wait and see what happens. We just have to wait and see and my main objective is to concentrate on the players picking up more points than they have at the moment.

"We have to keep the performances going because they are very, very good but stop throwing points away like we have done in the last few games."
