Newcastle: Fans on Twitter not surprised by Steven Gerrard snub

Newcastle United are obviously without a manager after the departure of Rafa Benitez and The Mirror have claimed that Steven Gerrard has rebuffed an attempt from Mike Ashley to bring him to St. James’ Park. 

Oddly, the reaction from some of the fans, that you will see below, has mostly been of support of Gerrard’s decision to snub them.

Benitez left the club back at the end of June when his contract expired, and the statement that the Spaniard left for the fans before departing pointed the finger towards Mike Ashley and ‘those at the top of the club’ claiming that they ‘did not share the same vision’, which the fans can read on Rafa Benitez’s Twitter account.

The Telegraph had suggested the former England skipper was on the club’s radar as they search for a new boss, though according to the most recent update, Gerrard is ready to stay in Glasgow for his second season in charge.
