Blackburn stand by Diouf in QPR row

Blackburn Rovers are standing by El Hadji Diouf over his row with QPR.

Diouf stands accused of abusing and taunting Jamie Mackie while the QPR forward was lying on the turf with a broken leg.

The Guardian says Blackburn officials will hold further talks with their controversial player tomorrow and are of a mind to issue a statement in his defence.

A senior Blackburn figure said the club have a "duty of care" to Diouf, who could himself offer a direct response to Mackie's claims.
