Steve Kean pulled out of a scheduled appearance on Goals on Sunday today, the day after Sam Allardyce accepted an out-of-court settlement believed to be in the region of 200,000 from him and Blackburn Rovers.
Former Blackburn manager Kean had to fork out after derogatory claims were made about Allardyce by him in the summer of 2011.

Goals on Sunday co-host Chris Kamara revealed the short-notice change on Twitter this morning.
He said: 'Morning all. Last minute lineup change Didi Hamann and Phil Brown with me and the adorable @benshephard tweet him any questions 11till 12.'
Kean was filmed making the remarks by supporters during a pre-season trip Blackburn made to Hong Kong.
Kean’s allegations about the
operating methods, integrity and managerial ability of Allardyce — his
predecessor at Ewood Park — were made public when the fans published a
video of the conversation on YouTube.
Allardyce took legal action against
Kean personally and against Rovers. The action has been settled with a
payment to Allardyce, who is now manager of West Ham. On Saturday all
parties involved in the case declined to comment.
