Kean not interested in protests just his Blackburn players

Steve Kean says he is not taking too much interest in supporter protests against him.

The Blackburn Rovers boss has been the subject of vocal chants and objections in the form of banners to have him ousted as manager at Ewood Park but he was remaining defiant after today's 2-1 home loss to Tottenham which left them on the bottom of the Premier League table.

"I don't know if it is a large section of the crowd, and to be fair, I'm not really paying any attention to anybody who is staying behind," Kean said.

"I'm interested in my players and what they give me, and they give me everything every single day.

"With that performance today, the crowd that didn't stay behind and the owners and staff who have worked their socks off all week for this game - we can go home and say 'we gave it everything we had'."

And Kean was adamant that his Rovers side deserved to get something from the match which went to Spurs courtesy of a double from Rafael van der Vaart either side of Mauro Formica's first-half equaliser.

"To be honest, if we had got a point, we would have been disappointed," he added.

"I think there were certain stages of the game where Tottenham could feel the pressure was upon them and I thought we were relentless with our wide play.

"We are slightly disappointed that the deflection off Assou-Ekotto has fallen straight in the line of Van der Vaart's strike.

"It is a top finish, but we kept going and Yakubu has had a couple of half-chances that didn't really fall for us."
