Absent Diouf faces Blackburn Rovers disciplinary
3:00pm Friday 15th July 2011 in News
Confusion still surrounds Diouf’s whereabouts, with the 30-year-old yet to report back for pre-season amid an uncertain future at Rovers, and the Senegal international looks likely to face a club fine when he finally returns to the fold.
Sources close to Diouf have suggested that Rovers gave the player permission to return to training late in order to fulfil charity commitments, but club insiders are said to be puzzled by his absence.
Diouf spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers and has been told by Rovers boss Steve Kean that he is likely to be down the club’s pecking order this season.
