Blackburn chairman John Williams has left the club after 14 years.

Williams is the second high-profile departure from Ewood Park since the Venky's takeover following the sacking of Sam Allardyce in December.

"With our new owners the Venky's Group, I have no doubt this is a new dawn for the club," Williams told the club's official website. "There is a new order, a new way of doing things and I believe the time is right for me now to move on."

Williams joined Blackburn in 1997 as chief executive and has been executive chairman since 2005.

He added: "I would like to take this opportunity to wish the club, its owners, management, players, employees and supporters all the very best for the future."

Managing director Tom Finn added: "All of us here at Ewood Park, our owners and I am sure all our fans, would like to take this opportunity to thank John for the contribution he has made during his tenure and we send him our best wishes for the future."
