Shebby Singh apologises to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen after comments made to BRAG open forum
Blackburn Rovers' Global Advisor, Shebby Singh, has made an open apology for comments he made about Rovers manager Steve Kean and veteran midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen at an open forum held by the Blackburn Rovers Action Group. Singh, who openly claimed that Kean should have been sacked at the end of last season before taking on the role, stated to the forum that Kean would be sacked if his side lost their firs three games of the season and claimed that Pedersen has "lost his legs".
The forthright former player and pundit now claims that he was attempting to appease fans but must find a "middle ground" between professional lines and his determination to please an unsettled group of supporters who have long felt their voice to be unheard since the Venky takeover. Singh was appointed in June by the Indian owners as a communicative link between owners and manager.
In the apology, published through the Lancashire Telegraph, Singh said, ""I would like to extend an apology to Steve Kean because some things were said on Saturday. I think they would have hurt Steve Kean's feelings and for that I sincerely apologise.
"I would also like to apologise to Morten Gamst Pedersen for what was said. There are no excuses and Morten is a great character.
"My blunt honesty sometimes upsets people and sometimes rubs people up the wrong way. I am making efforts to bring the club back to the fans and in trying to do that I have gone too far. I am trying to find the middle ground."
