Newcastle United legend Kevin Keegan ‘tempted’ by a return to St James’s Park

TALK-IN ... former Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan in South Shields last night.

TALK-IN ... former Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan in South Shields last night.

Newcastle United ‘Messiah’ Kevin Keegan is not ruling out another return to the Toon.

The Magpies legend told a packed talk-in at South Shields that he would never say never over a third stint at St James’s Park as manager.

Keegan’s last spell in the Newcastle hotseat was a short-lived one during the Mike Ashley regime in 2008 and ended in acrimony.

Yet the Toon talisman admitted he wouldn’t rule out another return – but only once the club was under new ownership.

He said: “It is very unlikely I would return as manager now.

“But if someone bought the club and asked me, I’d be very, very tempted I think.”

The news was welcomed by more than 200 fans who greeted Keegan at the venue, in the Hedworth Hall.
