London:

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has been charged with drink driving after failing a breath test hours after his team's 1-1 draw on Saturday which handed the title to Manchester United, a report said.

The under-pressure boss was travelling along the M6 in northwest England when he was pulled over by Cheshire police and will now appear before Crewe magistrates' court on June 7, according to a Press Association report.

The agency quoted a Cheshire police spokesman as saying: "At 8:50 pm 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," the spokesman confirmed.

Despite the impressive draw with the newly crowned Premier League champions, Rovers remain embroiled in a relegation dogfight with one match of the season remaining.
