Premier League chief Richard Scudamore has said they have no issue with Venky's owning Blackburn Rovers.

Scudamore is adamant the Rovers hierarchy passed the fitness to own rules laid down by the Premier League.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live: "We don't sit here regretting that the owners bought the club.

"What you do regret for them and the Blackburn fans are the performances of the team that led to them being relegated.

"But people can't possibly expect us to sit in London running clubs."

Scudamore added: "We put a framework in place for owners to run clubs and they passed all the financial rules.

"The decisions they made were for them to make. It's harsh but that's the ultimate reality.

"I think there's very little danger that Blackburn as a club will be threatened, but the idea I can give the fans any comfort regarding the future success of the club is out of the question."
