Steve is a Kean drinker and driver. Is arrested

Steve Kean played up to the perpetual Scottish stereotype and proudly represented us in front of the police after Saturday's 1-1 draw against Manchester United, having been found to be driving over the legal driving limit of alcohol consumption!  Lads on tour!

The Glaswegian has struggled to keep Blackburn Rovers afloat this season, having taken over the job from Sam Allardyce who was fired for no real reason at all.  Coupling this pressure with the inherent need for a Scottish person to drink beer resulted in the inevitable, cue Steve driving home whilst half pissed.  From BBC Sport:

The 43-year-old was breathalysed by police in Cheshire, hours after Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United.
He has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and is due before Crewe magistrates on 7 June.
Kean was appointed Rovers manager in December 2010.
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "At 2050 BST on Saturday 14 May, Cheshire officers stopped a Mercedes car on the M6 southbound carriageway, between Junction 19 and 18.
"The driver, a 43-year-old man, provided a positive breath test.
Every single person involved with football is a real role model and we should learn a lot from them -  from the bribe influenced high government, millionaire playboys that steal each other's wives and girlfriends, convicted rapists - everyone's a winner!  Now adding to the list of 'people that are pissed when they shouldn't be' is the wonderful Steve Kean, a man so forgettable that I have to check he really exists everytime I read he is the manager of a football club.
