Hogg played for the Tractors Boys, Hibernian and Inverness in a professional career stretching over 10 years.

The 34-year-old begins his role at the club training base immediately - and here is how some Magpies supporters reacted to the news on social media.

Indeed, some can't believe he is not called Steve, like Bruce, Agnew and Harper...

@mattyduggan: Good luck Chris and welcome to the Toon.

@ahteck9: This is unacceptable.. he's not a Steve!

@dandantbh: Can he play striker???

@Jimmy4249: Managed to employ someone not called Steve, a positive move surely?

@bigrobnufc: Can he play CF?

@crangsters: Remember playing for York City with this lad, was a beast even at 16 lol! Welcome to the madhouse.
