Gartside leaves Newcastle boss Allardyce fuming

Gartside claimed in a radio interview before the Barclays Premier League match that supporters had become bored with the team's style of play.

Allardyce, who left with two games to go last season, was stung by his remarks.

"The Bolton chairman has been saying a lot about me and I am very disappointed with the comments he has made," he said after the 3-1 victory at the Reebok Stadium.

"But actions speak louder than words. We played them off the park and won the game.

"That answers everything for me, rather than get into a fight.

"I would rather look forward than back. I have moved on and left Bolton in the best state it has ever been in.

"I do not understand his (Gartside's) thinking. He believes I have done certain things which I have not.

"He really should not. I have given them a great platform so I do not know why he is so critical of me."
