Asprilla has voiced his disapproval of McClaren, who is under intense pressure at St James's Park with the club deep in relegation trouble.

The retired striker – who spent two years at Newcastle in the late 1990s – gave his verdict on Twitter.

Asprilla tweeted: "McLaren needs to go; PERIOD!"

The 46-year-old yesterday tweeted a video of himself riding a hoverboard dressed as a dinosaur.
