Blackburn suffered relegation at the hands of Wigan and William Hill make Rovers 10/1 to go down to League one next season. They are 16/1 to win the league and 4/1 to win promotion by any means. Relegation often means that a number of star players could be released to balance the books and Hills are odds on about Yakubu (5/6), Paul Robinson (1/2) and David Dunn (8/13) all having left the club by the start of next season.
Martin Olsson and Junior Hoilett look as though they are already planning their exit strategies and they may just be the start of the exodus with many big names tipped to leave this summer, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Steve Kean is 1/5 to no longer be in charge of Blackburn on the first day of next season (10/3 that he is still there).
The relegation dogfight now goes down to the final day with Bolton needing a win at the Britannia Stadium and counting on Manchester City beating QPR. The Wanderers are 4/11 to go down, with QPR 2/1.
