Blackburn's operations director Paul Agnew has left the club after 17 years.

The news that the 55-year-old, who also held the position of general manager, would be departing Ewood Park was announced in a short statement on the club's website.

It said: "The club would like to announce that Paul Agnew is no longer employed by Blackburn Rovers Football & Athletic Plc and would like to thank Mr Agnew for his service as operations director over the last 11 months."

Agnew, a former chief executive at Preston, recently launched a freeze on season ticket prices as they look to win back supporters after a campaign which saw five managers in the dugout.
