Shaw: We have to move on at Blackburn Rovers
Blackburn Rovers ' managing director Derek Shaw insists the club now have to move on after last night's shock resignation of boss Steve Kean.
Shaw insists no one at the club knows why Kean decided to quit on the eve of this afternoon's Championship trip to Charlton but preferred to focus on the future.
Shaw admitted the club had already received interest from a couple of potential replacements and assured supporters they would be kept informed.
He confirmed Eric Black would be taking charge of first team affairs for the immediate future.
Shaw told the BBC, “I think he had just had enough, I don't know. None of us know that. It might have been conversations with his owners, it might have been conversations with his wife or his advisors.
“Steve has decided to move on and Blackburn Rovers have to move on. There has been enough said.
“I think it's right that the fans are kept informed but we will announce any updates when we're ready to.
"Every managerial appointment is important and there's one or two interested names come through already."
Kean informed Rovers' players of his resignation at the team hotel in London last night.
