Keegan was a hero on Tyneside as a player in the early 1980s and then again as manager in the 1990s, but was badly scarred on his third coming, under current owner Ashley.

And with apathy and anger towards Ashley at an all time high on Tyneside, Keegan has had his say on the on-going NUFC boycott.

“It’s your club. Everyone will have a different opinion of the 12 years,” he said.
