Colin Hendry leaves Blackburn Rovers

This Is Lancashire: Colin Hendry in his Rovers playing days Colin Hendry in his Rovers playing days

BLACKBURN Rovers U21s coach Colin Hendry has left the club by mutual agreement.

Hendry, who scored Rovers' winner in their 1987 Full Members Cup final victory at Wembley and was part of their 1994-95 Premiership winning team, returned to the club in 2012.

The former Scotland captain was appointed as a first-team coach.

But he spent last season assisting Eric Kinder with Rovers' U21s.

Hendry said: “I’ve enjoyed the last couple of seasons working with Gary Bowyer.

"I wish him well and hope he can guide Blackburn Rovers back into the Premier League.”

He was a great servant early doors fantastic memories especially at wembley scoring the winner, you had a big heart Colin, but your wallet always needed to be bigger ie jumping ship to City & Rangers, he also had great personal loss which must have affected him, but that has happened to many people without any consequence in the end it's a great shame really, mixed thoughts here

Hendry was an immense player for us and for that we should be grateful - but his extra-curricular activities left a lot to be desired and that includes before his mrs tragically passed away.

i had a minor dealing with him and found him to be totally unreliable and stuff that was committed to - never happened. a lost soul.

now that his pal kean has long departed and his replacement role of being singh's gopher has been made irrelevant - it seems that the club has finally opted to say "ta-ta".

pal of mine was talking to him last summer and he had expected the heave-ho then....he has done well to keep his none-job for another year

Good luck Big Col whatever you do next in life. You played a massive part in giving me and thousands of Rovers fans some of our best ever memories of actually winning things (which we all know does not happen very often in the life of a Rovers fan)!

First it was that that win at Wembley in the Full Members Cup when you scored the only goal of the game and won us our first trophy since the war! A much maligned competition - but boy did it feel good that day to be a Rovers fan and to win at Wembley.

Then came that magnificent 94/95 season when we won the premiership trophy which was the biggest ever moment in my life as a Roverite. probably a never to be repeated experience but one that few fans(even from the BIG clubs) will ever get to savour!

Two big moments from my 50 years plus as a Rovers fan, two fantastic memories and Colin Hendry played a massive part in both. Wont ever forget youse big man, Wha aye the Scots!

Thanks Rob, my thoughts exactly.

Outstanding player for Rovers, terrible personal tragedy loosing his wife the way he did and from what I have read his financial acumen left a great deal to be desired.

I haven't met anyone yet who hasn't made mistakes or errors of judgment in life, he has to live with his as do we all.

His links with Kean and Shebby destroyed his credibility with a lot of fans but at the end of the day I only knew him as a player who gave everything for the club.
Comments of a pr-ck from the same mould as hendry a lot of people have traumatic family probs but they dont rip their best friend off for tens of thousands of pounds and just to remind you he walked away from jw and the rovers again in the name of money
Out with the cowboys and indisns
Mr Tolerant & Reasonable. You are an inspiration to all of us.

A Rover 45 years and over says...

one of the best players to put on a Rovers shirt, could also play as a make shift centre forward during a game, scored some vital goals and was brilliant to watch. Remember his first game at Ewood and he fitted into the team like he had been there for years. Pity about all the rubbish that happened to him after he retired from football, loosing his wife and then reportedly having a gambling addiction and all the trouble that followed that with his reputation being tarnished for ever in some peoples eyes.

Captain Dreckley says...

Oh how we could do with a centre half in the Hendry style to partner Hanley and develop his potential and that is how we should remember big Col. Unfortunately his return to the club in a coaching role has tainted the memory and him moving on can only be positive for Rovers. I'm still waiting for the transfer explosion down at Dingley dell. Club with all that money and ambition to invest to establish themselves as a premier league club. When I heard Fabrigas was coming back to the premier league I thought it was tied on he was off to the dingles. Have the shower actually spent anything yet or is the budget going on replacing the wooden seats?

Finally hounded out by a club and supporters too ungrateful to recall what he did for them.

Knew a few things about him before he even joined the Kean gravy train.

Two words: Good riddance.
