    Steve Kean has rocketed up the sack race standings after William Hill slashed his odds for the chop from 50/1 (51.0) to 7/1 (8.0).

    Blackburn Rovers have failed to win since turning over West Brom on 23 January. Since then they’ve been dumped out of the FA Cup by Aston Villa in a poor run which has seen them lose four of their last five matches, including another defeat by Gerard Houllier’s side at the weekend.

    “Kean has been well backed over the course of the last few days as Blackburn slide toward the drop zone and it could well be ‘Rover and out’ for Steve,” said William Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

    After succeeding Sam Allardyce last November the 43-year-old was handed a full-time contract until 2013 by Blackburn’s new owners. However, results have taken a turn and the 1994-95 Premier League champions hover above the relegation zone in 14th.

    Kean’s elevation in the sack race has taken some of the heat off former favourites Carlo Ancelotti and Avram Grant, who are still a shorter price than Kean to leave their jobs next.
