Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter and reacted to Steven Taylor being released, when his contract ends at the end of the month.
Steven was black and white through and through and was ball-boy at St. James’ Park during the Kevin Keegan years in the 1990s.
But he has been struggling over the last few years with both his form and his many injuries, and it was a good time for Steven to leave his home town club.
Here are some of tweets Newcastle fans have sent out on the news.
Steven Taylor – gone
Good luck to Steven Taylor. Correct decision to go. #nufc

As a #nufc fan, happy to see Steven Taylor leave. A player with great passion and bravery, I wish him the best. Just wasn’t good enough IMO.

Some fans man, negative to the core.
Taylor leaving after 13 years, is definitely a handshake and a thank you & not a good riddance #NUFC

Steven Taylor was never our best defender, but he does love #NUFC and I wish him well. Gonna miss those fist pumps at the Gallowgate End!
