Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says they're delighted to have fixed the Wonga row with Papiss Cisse.

Cisse returned from his exile to score in a 2-0 friendly victory at St Mirren wearing the club’s new Wonga shirt.

Pardew said: “All strikers need to score goals. It gives them that added confidence. It was a fabulous goal and I was very pleased with it.

“He was under a lot of pressure last night. We love him and we embraced him. He worked so hard.

“That was a reflection of it all last night because you don’t score a goal like that without working hard.”
