Newcastle need Smith, insists Keegan

Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan remains confident Alan Smith will win over the Toon support.

He said: "At every club, players like that are invaluable. They just go in and do a job for you, give it their very, very best every time and are great around the place.

"Those type of players are absolute gold dust, not just at Newcastle United, but at any club."
