Newcastle chairman dismisses speculation over Keegan, Shearer return

Newcastle United chairman Chris Mort has dismissed reports linking Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer with a return to St James' Park.

Mort told the Evening Chronicle: "Yes, I have just met Alan Shearer and I have to say that he is a massive icon and that he is doing a fabulous job as an ambassador for Newcastle United.

"That's what we talked about, and we have several things lined up which we would like him to do so he can carry on his great work in this role.

"And I am sure that while Alan may have ambitions to be manager of his club one day, he would probably say that he is not looking to do it at this moment in time.

"And there is certainly no truth in any reports that we are looking to bring him in as a manager.

"As far as Kevin Keegan is concerned, I have never talked to him and I have no intention of talking to him."
