AUDIO: Hear Joe Kinnear's infamous sweary rant while Newcastle United boss

Sir John Hall Stand Newcastle

Newcastle United have controversially brought Joe Kinnear back to the club.

When Joe Kinnear was appointed as Newcastle boss in 2008 it was seen as a perplexing decision by Mike Ashley which stunned football.

Kinnear was a brash figure not afraid to speak his mind, and became most famous in his time there not for his team's football, but for his battle with the media.

He ended up departing the club due to health reasons, before Alan Shearer took over the reigns and saw the club relegated.

Kinnear was yesterday re-appointed by the club, to oversee transfers, and has already stated he will have the final say, not Alan Pardew.

It's a perfect chance to revisit his infamous rant against reporters back in his reign as Newcastle manager.

You can listen to it below, although warning if you are at work - It is packed with expletive language!

What do you think of the decision to bring Kinnear back?
