Kevin Keegan was at Ibrox last Thursday to watch Rangers beat Werder Bremen 2-0 in the UEFA Cup.
Chairman Mort – has to be concerned about relegation reality
Kevin has been saying today there are some very good players right now playing in the Scottish Premier league.
Kevin has been linked with a move for Celtic winger Aiden McGeady and clearly needs to bring new faces to St James’ Park.
Kevin said today:
“I think you will see more and more Premier League managers looking at Scotland because there is some talent there.â€
“I don’t mean this disrespectfully but probably, for the last six or seven years, that wasn’t always the case.â€
“We are like any other club, we will look for talent wherever we think it can improve us. Whether it be Scotland, Lithuania, Russia, that’s what you do.â€
“At the moment I think Scotland has got four or five players. (Alan) Hutton has just gone down to Spurs from Rangers and I think there are others here, definitely.â€
“I think they will interest everybody to be honest, not just me.”
But weâ€™re not sure what those new faces will look like. They may not be the top players we expect, because there an ever increasing chance that Newcastle will be relegated this season.
We’re sure Mike Ashley and Chris Mort already have a disaster plan in place in case we go down. They might not admit it, but they are far too good at business planning, not to know what they’ll do if the disaster scenario actually happens.
Every defeat brings that disaster scenario closer and closer to reality.
