Given: Newcastle boss Kinnear has my support

Shay Given says Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear can count on his support.

Given expressed sympathy and support for Joe Kinnear, Kevin Keegan's interim replacement, who launched an expletive-ridden rant at the media 11 days ago.

"He was disappointed and angry with some of the stuff that was written about him," Given said.

"He needed to get a few things off his chest - and he certainly did that - but we've got to give him credit for coming up to the club when it's in turmoil."
