Newcastle's Taylor unconcerned at England snub

Newcastle defender Steven Taylor is more concerned with maintaining his club form than worrying over not being picked for the England squad. "If I've got my team-mates, my manager and the fans behind me - that's the most important thing," Taylor told the Shields Gazette.

"The manager said some nice things, which is fantastic.

"I'll just keep playing week in, week out, and hopefully we'll keep getting results. I'll let other people do the talking.

"My team-mates and manager have stuck by me, and the fans have been brilliant. Credit to them - I've got to thank everyone for helping me.

"Don't get me wrong, it's the greatest honour for a professional footballer to be called up for your country.

"If that chance comes along, I'll relish it. I'll just keep working hard and hopefully playing well for Newcastle, and see what happens."
