Newcastle United legend Malcolm Macdonald has lashed out at club owner Mike Ashley.
Macdonald told the Daily Star Sunday: "We all knew Cabaye was going and yet there was nothing done in terms of replacing him. It is an absolute scandal - but it is not Alan Pardew's fault.
"It is sheer madness if they think that is the way they should be running the club. It is not being run in a football fashion.
"If Mike Ashley was to sell all his football boots at his Sports Direct business, wouldn't he replace them with new stock?"
