Sir Alex Ferguson claims Blackburn fans must regret their vicious campaign to oust Steve Kean from Ewood Park.
Kean has survived at Blackburn, despite protest marches, sit-ins and even planes buzzing home games, trailing banners calling for his head.
Ferguson says his fellow Glaswegian deserves immense credit for coming through this ordeal with his dignity intact in the face of such vitriolic protests.
Kean has hauled Rovers three points clear of the drop zone ahead of Monday's clash with Manchester United at Ewood Park and Fergie says the fans must know they were out of order.
"You know how things can change if you dig in and don't let them get to you," said the United boss.
"Now no-one talks about those fans having protests, marches and all the rest of it.
"He's held his dignity very, very well. He deserves absolute 100 per cent praise from everyone, including his own supporters, who I'm sure a lot of them will be saying to themselves, 'I wish I hadn't done that'.
"He's certainly shown his mettle in those times when it was difficult for him.
"They've made it difficult for us in recent games. When they score first, they make it hard for you and we've had a couple of draws there."
