Blackburn were gone before Allardyce arrived - Nelsen

Blackburn Rovers skipper Ryan Nelsen says they were doomed for relegation before Paul Ince was removed.

Nelsen said: "Before Sam (Allardyce) came in we were an absolute sinking ship, in big trouble.

"If the directors had not moved when they did we'd have been in serious trouble now.

"There is no disrespect to Paul. He will be a fantastic manager when the time is right but results are all that matters.

"Sam changed little things that his experience as a manager saw that Paul didn't."
