STEVE KEAN has delivered bookies one of the results of the year according to Ladbrokes.

His Blackburn side defied odds of 20-1 to give layers up and down the land plenty of reason to celebrate at midnight after pulling off one of the Premier League upsets of the calendar year, in a move which also sees his sack race odds lengthen.

Despite Blackburn’s terrible record at Old Trafford the firm report total pre-match stakes up to £250,000 on the beleaguered side who foiled 1/7 coupon bankers United.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Kean has given us one of our best results of the calendar year right on the cusp of 2012. We’ll certainly be raising a glass to him tonight along with Blackburn backers who had the faith.”

He added: “It would be no surprise to see Kean finally shake off the dreaded tag of sack race favourite.”
