COLIN Hendry has been appointed as first team coach at Blackburn Rovers.
The 46-year-old Scot, who had a disappointing 18-month tenure as Blackpool boss in 2004-05, has been out of the game since leaving Clyde on compassionate grounds in 2008.
Hendry, who lives in Lytham, will link up with Steve Kean, who looks set to stay in charge despite Rovers’ relegation and fans’ protests against him. Pool face Blackburn at Bloomfield Road on Saturday December 15. The return game at Ewood Park is on Good Friday, March 29.
