Alan Shearer sends message to Steve Bruce after ‘good friend’ is sacked by the Saudis

Alan Shearer has thanked Steve Bruce for his two years of ‘effort and commitment’ at Newcastle and pointed towards his own brief stint as manager to highlight how tough the job was under Mike Ashley.

A turbulent two years on Tyneside came to a crashing end this morning when a club statement confirmed Bruce had been sacked by the club.

He leaves with the club sitting winless and 19th in the Premier League, with the 3-2 defeat to Spurs the final straw for our new owners.

Jubilant Toon fans have taken to social media to express their joy at Bruce’s departure, with most – myself included – feeling he should have never been given the job in the first place.

Now, our record goalscorer and a good friend of Bruce’s has taken to Twitter to wish our former manager well, thank him for his services and mention how much Bruce and his family wanted things to work out at Newcastle.

This is what he tweeted just moments after he packed his bags:

I know how tough it was for any manager at Newcastle for the last 14 years.

‘I also know how badly Steve and his family wanted it to work.

In difficult circumstances for everybody, he kept #NUFC up for two seasons.

It’s a new era now, but thank you, Steve,for your effort & commitment.’
