When Rolando Aarons first burst onto the scene at St James Park there was genuine excitement. A lot of the supporters belieed that they had theur next gem. However, just a few years later and after two unsuccessful loans with Hellas Verona and Slovan Liberec, it looks like his career at St James Park is over.
Rolando Aarons a 90th minute “run down the clock” substitute for 7th placed Czech outfit Slovan Liberec tonight. Has barely started a game.
What on Earth happened to him

The winger is now 23, but when he first entered the fray at Newcastle as a teenage he had so much about him. The supporters genuinely believed that if anyone from their youth system was going to go on and become a star then it would simply have to be Aarons. Those thoughts on the winger, though, are now just a distant memory for the supporters.
His last game for Slovan Liberec came this weekend when he was a 90th minite substitute for the Czech club, most likely in an attempt to run down the clok. However, his late appearance took him to ten for the season for his temporary club, and it was also his last as he now returns to the Northeast of England with his heead held not very high after yet another disappointing loan spell.
You can see what the Geordies made of Aarons’ loan here:
When he first burst onto the scene at 17 years of age I thought he was going to be such an amazing player for us. He looked incredible.

The fans are all gutted for Aarons, yet some seem to think that it’s the 23-year-old’s own fault for his fall from grace.
