Liverpool legend Alan Hansen says it shouldn't be panic stations at Newcastle United.

Liverpool legend Alan Hansen says it shouldn't be panic stations at Newcastle United.

Hansen is convinced Newcastle will bounce back strongly from a dismal campaign - if they can avoid the drop.

He wrote in the Telegraph: "I understand the fear for Newcastle given the way they have played in the last few weeks, especially at home, but I see their current plight as a freakish dip due to a series of unfortunate circumstances rather than a terminal, predictable decline.

"The anomaly of the league table is that should Newcastle keep out of the bottom three, I would expect them to finish comfortably in the top half next season under Pardew."
