Micky Quinn reacts to embarrassing Newcastle defeat, Adam Virgo makes a prediction

Steve McClaren

Adam Virgo says Liverpool will sack Brendan Rodgers before Newcastle United dismiss Steve McClaren.

Micky Quinn has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Newcastle United’s defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at home this evening.

Newcastle’s poor run of form continued as the Magpies went down 1-0 to Championship outfit Wednesday at St. James’ Park in the third round of the League Cup.

Lewis McGugan’s goal in the 76th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides, as the Magpies’ season goes from bad to worse.

Steve McClaren’s side are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment, and the manager is coming under pressure.

Former Newcastle forward Quinn was following the match, and he was far from impressed with the performance of the team.

Former Celtic player Adam Virgo, who now works as a Channel 5 pundit, criticised Newcastle’s decision to appoint McClaren as their head coach in the summer, pointing out the collapse of Derby County in the second half of last season.

Virgo, though, believes that Brendan Rodgers will be sacked as the Liverpool manager before Newcastle dismiss McClaren.

Liverpool have also made a disappointing start to the 2015-16 Premier League season, with manager Rodgers coming under pressure.
