Rovers could face transfer embargo
BLACKBURN Rovers managing director Derek Shaw has admitted the club could face a transfer embargo under the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules if Rovers do not win promotion from the Championship this season.
Shaw also said that should Gary Bowyer’s side earn promotion to the Premier League this season, that they could be hit with a fine in line with the FPP rules which are set to come into play from the start of the 2014-15 campaign.
The Rovers managing director insisted the club is doing its upmost to reduce the wage bill, adding that bringing in new players in the summer was imperative to improve a squad that only just avoided what would have been a second successive relegation last term.
The Rovers chief believes that many other Championship clubs could find themselves in a similar position to Rovers when the new financial rules are introduced.
